The Magic High Commission

A group of powerful magical beings at the head of the Bureaucracy of Magic, created by Glossaryck to protect the magic of the universe. Queen Moon Butterfly is also an additional member, as every Mewni queen is during their reign.


    open/close all folders 

    General 
  • All for Nothing: They imprisoned Eclipsa and orchestrated a massive cover-up to make Meteora an Unperson in order to prevent a monster-mewman hybrid from inheriting the throne, only for Rhina to marry a demon just three generations later and pass down the crown to Celena, a half-demon (although, it's canon that demons are considered "acceptable" enough that Tom is permitted to shop by a hostile shopkeeper).
  • All There in the Manual: The circumstances and reasons behind their creation can be found in Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension.
  • All There in the Script: Hekapoo and Lekmet's names were first revealed by the show's creative director on Tumblr. Their names first came up in the show proper in "Running With Scissors" and "Crystal Clear" respectively.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: Downplayed. According to Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension, each member of the group besides the current Queen of Mewni was created by Glossaryck and while they certainly respect his power, none of them like him very much.
  • Arc Villain: Of season 4a, albeit more antagonistic than villainous. They are not happy with Eclipsa as queen and keep her under constant scrutiny, threatening to recrystallize her at the first sign of treachery. Rhombulus in particular bears a grudge against her, and is ultimately the one to cross the line into outright villainy. In 4b, their role is reduced to being largely inactive helpers of the Big Bad Duumvirate of Mina and Moon, with Mina more or less declaring they have all outlived their usefulness, the sole exception being Hekapoo, having had a Heel Realization and becoming the Token Good Teammate.
  • Bait the Dog: "Cornonation" seemed to show Rhombulus was the only one willing to take an active role in opposing Eclipsa, as the others arrest him for being a public danger when he's found out. Then the Commission find out Moon was supporting Rhombulus to take back the throne herself, release him, and support Mina's coup d'etat with only Hekapoo raising any concerns, and even then it's just about the fact that Mina is crazy.
  • Badass Family: Lekmet, Rhombulus, Omnitraxus-Prime, and Hekapoo were created by Glossaryck to protect the magic of the multiverse.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: While they are in on the conspiracy, they don't realize Mina becomes less controllable under their thumb with her own personal agendas. They end up dying simply as a side effect of the plan to stop Mina.
  • Big Good: Zigzagged and ultimately subverted. The group is clearly meant to be this, and some characters in-universe see them as this, but their methods are so fallible and their personalities so uncooperative, that they don't help nearly as much as they can. This is taken a step further when it's revealed that they were involved in the conspiracy that vanished Meteora and put Festivia in her place, hiding the truth about the Butterfly Family. The actual role of Big Good ends up befalling Moon through the first two seasons and then shared between Moon and Star in season 3, while the council falls more towards grey morality.
  • Boomerang Bigots: Most of the non-mewmans arbitrarily exempted from Mewni's prejudice against monsters seem to just tolerate it because it doesn't affect them (sometimes begrudgingly, as is the case with Tom). The Magic High Commission seem to seriously think "monsters" inherently untrustworthy, to the point of replacing Mewni's legitimate heir with an impostor just to keep one from gaining magic power.
  • Broken Pedestal: At least for the Royal Family following the discovery of Meteora's being made an Un-person. It's made clear Star has zero trust in them any more and boots them out of the war room while trying to figure out what to do about the rampaging, nigh unstoppable Meteora. That said, Marco at least trusts Hekapoo enough to make her part of his team to try and stop Meteora.
  • Calling Parents by Their Name: Glossaryck created them, making him their father. However, they all (sans Reynaldo) refer to him by his given name.
  • Celestial Bureaucracy: They hold one over magic.
  • Create Your Own Villain: Their actions and monster prejudice were what led to Meteora's family losing their rightful throne, and Meteora enduring a lot of abuse that influenced her into becoming an emotionally unstable Tragic Villain.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Many of them are out-and-out demonic entities, but they're all on the side of order and do their best to neutralize cosmic threats. This gets turned on its head later, with the addition of Order Is Not Good in regards to what they did to Eclipsa, her Monster Lover, and her daughter Meteora.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Each of them, barring Lekmet, have gotten one fleshing out their role in the multiverse and personality better: "Running with Scissors" for Hekapoo, "Mathmagic" for Omnitraxus Prime, and "Crystal Clear" for Rhombulus.
  • Dwindling Party: They originally had six members (including the queen), but have lost several without replacing them:
    • Hundreds of years ago, Reynaldo was placed under a spell by Rhina the Riddled that forced him to speak in riddles, which she was unable to undo. This made his speech nigh-indecipherable, forcing him to resign and instead ferry at the River of Time.
    • In "Starcrushed", Lekmet is killed by Toffee.
    • After "Butterfly Trap", Moon effectively quits when she discovers the others' conspiracy against the crown, Star is unwilling to work with them when she becomes acting queen, and Eclipsa is unwelcome to them when she becomes queen.
    • "Cornonation" ends with Rhombulus being arrested for reckless public endangerment. He ends up released shortly after, probably because it turned out to be Moon's idea, but they really are tired of his antics.
    • Hekapoo eventually abandons the Commission in disgust over them supporting Mina's coup.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: They formed an alliance with Mina, who was already been planning on getting rid of Eclipsa before they thought of it. Only Hekapoo has objections and clearly doesn't trust Mina for their purposes. Mina ends up betraying Moon, making her intentions for the Commission questionable.
  • Face–Heel Turn: A season after proving themselves to be very morally dubious, "Ready, Aim, Fire" shows they really have become willing to violently dethrone Eclipsa, they just don't want anyone to know.
  • Fantastic Racism: Their overall opinion of monsters are not the most enlightened, which is quite bizarre considering that they're pretty much monsters themselves as pointed out by Star. The possibility of a monster with magic was enough for them to imprison Eclipsa and utterly erase all evidence of her half-monster daughter.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: They crystallized Eclipsa for abandoning her Mewman husband then falling in love with a monster.
  • Fighter, Mage, Thief: Omnitraxus and Rhombulus are physical juggernauts, Hekapoo specializes in speed and deception, and Moon and Lekmet take on the role of Black Mage and White Mage, respectively.
  • God's Hands Are Tied: Despite essentially being charged with running the universe and enforcing magical law, they do not seem as powerful as the job description would have you believe, having been beaten and strong-armed by forces like a half-wand-empowered, Toffee-possessed Ludo and the Box of Truth. This is especially egregious in the case of Omnitraxis, who is essentially the omnipresent embodiment of space-time!
  • The Gods Must Be Lazy: Averted. They're trying their best to find the leak in magic while still doing incredibly important jobs to the function of the multiverse.
  • Government Conspiracy:
    • As revealed in "Butterfly Trap", The Magic High Commission conspired alongside Eclipsa's husband and king of Mewni to replace Eclipsa's half-monster baby daughter (Meteora/Miss Heinous) with a peasant Mewman baby girl (Festivia), all because they couldn't allow someone of monster descent to take Mewni's throne. Since then, the Commission has gone through great lengths to make sure that Eclipsa's daughter would have her existence erased and then replaced by Festivia from all historical records.
    • In the tail end of season four, they again try to secretly control the crown by arresting Rhombulus for trying to frame Eclipsa, then helping Mina and Moon stage a coup.
  • Hypocrite:
    • After their concealment of the truth about Meteora is revealed, Star points out they expect everyone to follow their rules, but never to be judged by them. This is specially blatant as looking back, they had called out Moon for hiding things from them. Of course, they find out the hard way during the trial that not even they are above their own laws.
    • Despite their distrust of monsters, they're pretty monstrous and weird-looking themselves, to varying degrees. They even specifically cite that a monster must never be given magic, even though they have magic.
    • They claim Eclipsa and Globgor have terrorized Mewni and its inhabitants and must be stopped, yet they orchestrated Globgor's release as an excuse to try re-crystallize Eclipsa while putting hundreds of spectators and Meteora in danger as they fought Globgor. Then they and Moon allied with Mina Loveberry and created an army of super soldiers that are rampaging through Mewni and want to commit a monster holocaust. While said rampage is going on? They're having a pizza party and preemptively celebrating how the Commission's back in power. It's at this point even Hekapoo cuts out, realizing this is a disaster and would much rather let Mewni burn while saving her own skin, despite previously saying how doing such a thing and endangering people would make one the villain.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Hekapoo and Rhombulus are centuries old yet act like a teenager and an impulsive child respectively. Downplayed with Omnitraxus Prime who can act goofy but is far more mature and focused than the other two and completely subverted with the elderly Lekmet.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Zigzagged. Despite being morally dubious and helping to perpetuate the Mewman royal family's mistreatment of monsters, they were correct about the danger of Meteora getting access to magic. Although, Meteora only became a danger because of the Commission's actions in the first place, so how much a danger the hybrid would've been had she been raised properly in the first place is left in the air.
  • Jurisdiction Friction: At times, they do butt heads with Mewni's rulers.
  • Karmic Death: They are implied to have died at the end of season 4 when their reliance on Mina forced Star to destroy the magic to stop her. A bit of an extreme reversal of karma, but considering they wished to have things return to "the good old days" and what exactly those days consisted of, it's hard to really feel sorry for them.
  • Kangaroo Court: The Eclipsa plotline shows that they have absolute and monopolist power over the multiverse's magic justice. Sean mentions in "Butterfly Trap" that they rarely hold trials because Rhombulus is basically given free reign to put whoever he decides to deserve in crystal without ever having to justify himself to anyone, and nobody but Lekmet checks on it. If a trial is held at all, they are still the ones holding any power in it, and as Eclipsa's trial shows, they will ultimately rule whoever they want as evil.
  • Killed Off for Real: After the destruction of Magic, they are reduced to the objects they were created from with Rhomulus turning into a lifeless crystal with two snakes, Omnitraxus turning into a lifeless skull and Heckapoo who's implied to have died alongside them but it's not shown.
  • Knight Templar: They're willing to resort to pretty swift measures to get rid of potential evil, like crystalizing people with no trial (including Star). This extends into Would Hurt a Child territory, considering what they did to Meteora.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: They spent their entire lives lying to people and basically doing whatever they wanted. Eventually, Moon and Eclipsa forced them to tell the truth of their actions using the Box of Truth, and Star calls them out on their hypocrisy.
  • The Men in Black: They've been the ones running Mewni behind the scenes, to the point that they seem to have had a hand in Meteora's disappearance and erasing all evidence of her existence. They have kept this a secret for hundreds of years, even from the royal family themselves.
  • Never Hurt an Innocent: For all the deception they've taken part in, they will never deliberately harm innocent people. This is especially evident when they find out Rhombulus released Globgor, expecting him to go on a rampage. They support Mina and the Solarians' coup under the belief that Moon will keep them from attacking civilians. But their celebrations as the giant armored soldiers stomp around panicking villagers makes one question how much they actually care.
  • Not-So-Omniscient Council of Bickering: Meeting with them often go down in trouble and fighting soon. Between Hekapoo and Rhombulus' Immortal Immaturity, difficulties with communication to Omnitraux and the fact that their leader and Only Sane Employee, Lekmet, is also unintelligible to anyone but Rhombulus, they have a hard time trying to talk with each other. To make matters worse, other hot headed characters often join the meeting and quickly join the bickering and fighting, like Mina and Glossaryck.
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: They interrupt Glossaryck's job and make him go through arduous procedures just to relay a simple message and evaluate his work, something that could've easily been done over mirror (unless the mirror was also as "on the fritz" as the rest of the universe).
  • Oh, Crap!: Lekmet and Hekapoo have this reaction when they see Star and Marco about to read Queen Eclipsa's chapter.
  • Our Demons Are Different: They all resemble demonic entities and Lekmet is outright described as an "angel goat demon".
  • Physical Gods: All of them are ages old incredibly powerful beings with high positions in the multiverse; Hekapoo crafting the Dimensional Scissors used by many to traverse the multiverse, Omnitraxus Prime proceeds over space-time, Rhombulus jails incredibly dangerous beings and Lekmet presides over all magic.
  • Predecessor Villain: They, together with Eclipsa's Mewman husband, hid Eclipsa and stopped her from getting the throne, which created Miss Heinous.
  • Pure Magic Being: Most of their bodies are made of magic. When The Magic Goes Away, they're reduced to nothing but the inanimate objects they were made of.
  • Superpower Lottery: With Lekmet being the tragic exception.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Despite the things they have done, they genuinely do think their actions are right and what's best.
  • Who Watches the Watchmen?: Their responsibility is to govern the laws of magic and maintain order in the multiverse, but they are shown to be corrupt, abusing their power to interfere in Mewni's leadership and tamper with their history, etc. The answer to this problem is the Box of Truth, demonstrating that not even they are above their own laws.
  • The Worf Effect: Despite being incredibly powerful, in "Starcrushed" they get easily beaten by Toffee in possession of Ludo's body, demonstrating how much of a threat he has become.
  • Worf Had the Flu: The fritz plaguing the multiverse gradually weakened them over the course of season 2 to the point that Toffee was able to defeat them quite handily when he finally chose to make his move.
  • You Are What You Hate: They claim to hate and distrust Eclipsa, Globgor, and Meteora because the former two are evil and have terrorized innocent Mewmans while the idea of a monster child like Meteora having magic is too dangerous. And yet these morons used their powers to give an entire army to a genocidal maniac whose actions will probably lead to Mewni's total destruction unless she's stopped.

Central Members

    Hekapoo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hekapoo.png
I'm the forger of all dimensional scissors. Each pair is made specifically for the entity who earns them.
Voiced by: Zosia Mamet

The creator of all dimensional scissors, and the true owner of the pair that Pony Head stole and gave to Star.


  • Affably Evil: Despite being in on the conspiracy to overthrow Eclipsa, she was still friendly towards Marco and Star. Ultimately becomes subverted once she turns out to be the Token Good Teammate.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Marco calls her H-poo before leaving, though she doesn't like being called that.
  • The Ageless: 16 years have passed in her dimension, but she doesn't age. She also looks the same as she did when Moon was a teenager.
  • Aroused by Their Voice: She admits that she finds Marco's adult voice irresistible, and he uses it to convince her to not report Star's sleep-portaling to the Magic High Commission.
  • Berserk Button: Abusing the power of the scissors, especially if you haven't earned them.
  • Bigotry Exception: Hekapoo will continue to enforce the Magical High Commission's prevailing prejudiced view towards monsters, but she doesn't have any sort of problem spending time with Talon Raventalon. It's unclear if this is because Talon is considered "acceptable" for a monster by Hekapoo's standard, or if his race is another that Mewni society considers non-monster.
  • Cute Little Fangs: She sports a pair, which accentuate her standard sly smile.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Looks like a pale young girl with horns and maybe fur.
  • Dirty Coward: In "Conquer", after Meteora proved too powerful for the "Marc-nificent Seven", she suggested hiding out at her favorite tavern until the whole mess blew over. To clarify: she was all for abandoning Mewni to the threat she and the rest of the Commission inadvertently created through their own duplicitous actions. Later, she does exactly this when Mina and the Solarian warriors go out control, although in this case she was at least against that plan from the start, and went out of her way to save a few other people.
  • Dope Slap: How she administers the Mark of Hekapoo to Marco.
  • Doting Parent: Festivia's entry in the book has Hekapoo telling her that she will support the young queen no matter what. Festivia even referred to her as 'auntie' in a hashtag.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She first appeared briefly as a member of the Magic High Commission that Glossaryck met with in "Page Turner" before getting a starring role in "Running with Scissors".
  • Embarrassing Nickname: She regards Marco's Affectionate Nickname for her, H-poo, to be one.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Calls out Rhombulus for being willing to put innocents in danger by letting Globgor out to prove that Globgor and Eclipsa are evil, despite not trusting the Queen herself. Her disgust at Rhombulus being released because Moon put him up to it, and the Commission working with Mina, end up driving her to quit entirely.
  • Exact Words: Hekapoo tells Marco that he can have Star's (actually hers that were stolen by Pony Head and given to Star) dimensional scissors back if he blows out her flame. That is, her flame. Not that of one of her many, many clones.
  • Face Death with Dignity: She was perfectly fine with Star's idea of destroying magic, and enables her to use portals. When Marco mentions that she is made of magic (so she can't survive if that happens), she responds that magic caused more harm than good. She also didn't looked very excited or concerned about that idea.
  • Fantastic Racist: Hekapoo has a very low opinion of humans that Marco elevates somewhat. More importantly, she with the rest of the council engaged in a conspiracy to keep the half-monster Meteora/Miss Heinous off the throne of Mewini for their puppet Festivia to rule instead (who according to The Magic Book of Spells was not actively encouraged by Hekapoo to pursue peace with Monsters despite Omni doing so) and as of "Ready, Aim, Fire" is engaged in a conspiracy with Mina to drive Eclipsa off the throne alongside disposing of the monsters in Mewni. While Hekapoo has objections, they're over Mina being untrustworthy, insane, and her methods being too risky; rather than conspiring against the active queen with her policies on monsters.
  • Fiery Redhead: Played with. Hekapoo has red hair and can get quite literally fiery when angered, but, the majority of the time has a mellow, laid-back air about her, and it takes some specific things to make her angry.
  • Foe Romantic Subtext: The way she and Marco interact when he shows up at her place was reminiscent of an action movie hero flirting with a Femme Fatale. He also has an Affectionate Nickname for her and trusts her to take care of his Dragon-Cycle when he returns to Earth.
  • Fragile Speedster: Her natural speed, her portals, and her ability to duplicate herself make her incredibly hard to pin down. However, she was also easily knocked around by Toffee's energy blasts.
  • Friendly Enemy: In the loosest terms of an enemy, but it seems after sixteen years of chasing her and being chased she and Marco had developed a friendly relationship, with Marco even having a nickname for her, H-poo.
  • Graceful Loser: By the time Marco blows out the last flame, she's putting up no resistance at all and already has a custom pair of dimensional scissors prepared to reward him with.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Along with the rest of the Commission, she zigzags between ally and slightly antagonistic throughout the series, then finally crosses over into outright villainy by taking part in a conspiracy to violently overthrow the rightful queen of Mewni. Unlike the rest, Hekapoo objects to supporting Mina so much that she abandons the Commission, saving Star, Marco, Eclipsa, Meteora, and Moon, but Choosing Neutrality otherwise.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Even when she knows it will kill her, Hekapoo doesn't hesitate to enable Star to open a portal to the Magic Dimension to destroy it.
  • Horned Humanoid: Hekapoo has yellow horns vaguely resembling lightning bolts.
  • Hypocrite: Got mad at Marco for lying to her about Star causing the wild portals, yet lied for hundreds of years about replacing Meteroa with Festivia as queen of Mewni.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Despite the implications that she was actually very old, Hekapoo still acts like a teenage prankster while evading Marco.
  • Killed Offscreen: Probably due to her fan-favorite status, we don't see her death or the aftermath after the destruction of magic unlike Omnitraxus and Romulus.
  • Last Chance to Quit: After she gets away from him the first time, Hekapoo opens a portal to Earth to give Marco one last chance to go home sans the scissors. Marco refuses.
  • Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension reveals that she and the other members of the Magic High Commission were created by Glossaryck to help the people of Mewni.
  • Mark of the Beast: Parodied with the "Mark of Hekapoo" which is just a singed bald spot on the back of your head, delivered via Dope Slap.
  • Meaningful Name: Most likely named after Hecate, the Greek goddess of witchcraft, who is known for carrying a torch around. Also an Unfortunate Names given it ends with "poo."
  • Moral Myopia: In "Butterfly Trap". When the Truth or Punishments Box punishes the Commission for lying about what they did to Meteora, she claims they didn't do anything wrong.
  • Mythical Motifs: Hekapoo carries a lot of connections to the Greek Goddess Hecate.
    • Her position on the Magic High Commission and as the forger of dimensional scissors resonate with Hecate's domain of magic, crossroads, and entrance-ways.
    • Hecate was known to have three heads or three bodies. In the series, Hekapoo is known for her ability to duplicate herself. Hecate was also known to have a vampiric subordinate called Empusa, who would often prey on young men by seducing them. In the series, Hekapoo's relationship with Marco is shown to be flirtatious and she has a fire motif to her character design.
    • Another parallel to Hecate comes from Festivia's entry in the book of spells. Where she writes about Hekapoo supporting her through her childhood and regards her as an honorary aunt. In the mythology, Hecate helped Persephone during her marriage to Hades. She witnessed Persephone's abduction and became her companion within the underworld when Persephone agreed to stay there for a portion of the year. For helping her transition into the queen of the underworld, Hecate was rewarded with residence in the underworld. Where she's allowed to traverse freely between the underworld and the land of the living.
  • Odd Friendship: With Marco, a wimpy (human) mortal with a careful and responsible personality in contrast to her carefree, overconfident personality and trollish tendencies. The fact that she was still in contact with Marco after the Magic Commission's corruption was exposed said a lot about their friendship.
  • Older Than She Looks: After 16 years she doesn't look any different, may also be a case of Really 700 Years Old or she may even be The Ageless. Since it's indicated that 8 minutes on Earth is equal to 16 years in her dimension, that means 1 year on Earth is over a million years in Hekapoo's dimension.
  • Only the Chosen May Wield: Ideally, Hekapoo's scissors only go to those worthy of using them, but as Pony Head proved, you can simply steal a pair from someone who has them and she won't be able to catch you until you abuse their power too much.
  • Outnumbered Sibling: Glossaryck's only daughter.
  • Parental Substitute: She and the rest of the Magic High Commission raised Festivia, and the young queen was notably close to her "auntie" Hekapoo, often taking her advice the most.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her bangs are cut to cover her right eye.
  • Playing with Fire: Has fire powers, allowing her to forge dimensional scissors barehanded and brand Marco's head with the Mark of Hekapoo.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair almost touches the ground and is wider than her dress.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Abandons the Commission entirely for supporting Mina's coup, opting to move to an obscure hideout on the edge of the multiverse.
  • Self-Duplication: Hekapoo can create dozens of duplicates of herself, but they're all illusions. However, she can only create a finite number of clones before needing to repeat the spell.
  • Shear Menace: In combat she wields a pair of scissors separated into its component blades.
  • The Sixth Ranger: Before she joined, the original Magic High Commission consisted of Glossaryck, Omnitraxus, Lekmet, and Rhombulus.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The show's credits spell her name as "Hekapoo", but The Magic Book of Spells consistently spell it "Heckapoo".
  • Thinking Up Portals: Hekapoo uses dimensional scissors to cut portals open like everyone else, but her powers are what made the all the scissors in the first place.
  • Time Abyss: Given that one year in our dimension (or Mewni's dimension, for that matter) lasts for 1,051,200 years in her own dimension, and given that she has likely seen at least as much of those other dimensions as Glossaryck, who is old enough to have taught Star's 9x great grandmother, Queen Eclipsa, even her likely minimum age would be in the hundreds of millions of years.
  • Token Good Teammate: In Season 4, she not only finds Rhombulus' actions in "Cornonation" appalling, but is also the only member of the Commission to protest joining Mina in her coup and creating more Solarian warriors, which ultimately leads her to abandon the rest of the group and rescue Star, Marco, Moon, Eclipsa and Meteora from certain doom. It's downplayed however in that outside of opposing her former comrades and saving the others, she has no intent on involving herself further and is content on staying neutral afterwards. She does, however, perform an indirect Heroic Sacrifice when she supports Star in her decision to destroy magic and enables her to do so, knowing it will wipe her from existence.
  • Troll: She mocks and taunts Marco at any opportunity, such as when Marco finds out he lost 16 years of his life in less than 8 minutes.
    Yeah, I forgot to tell you that time passes differently in this dimension. Not sorry.
  • Ultimate Blacksmith: Hekapoo forges Dimensional Scissors, blades that can cut through reality and allow their wielders to travel anywhere they wish.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Hekapoo's clones have her speed, intelligence, and powers, but blowing out the flames atop their heads will make them cease to exist. Doing this to Hekapoo herself won't harm her in the least.
  • Vagueness Is Coming: In "Gone Baby Gone", she warns Marco that something terrible is about to happen on Mewni, and orders him to stay on Earth for his own good. Turns out it was Mina's attack, which Hekapoo knew about because she was supporting it.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • In "Face the Music", when it's revealed that Star's parents have been keeping her silence about Glossaryck's abduction from Mewni and the High Commission, Hekapoo is the one calling out Moon on it.
    • She calls Marco out on his secrecy when she learns that he knew all along that Star was responsible for the rogue interdimensional portals they've been dealing with and never told her.
    • Though this all turns out to be extremely hypocritical of her considering how she and the rest of the commission lied about Eclipsa's daughter and interfered with the royal succession. She nonetheless tries to pull one on Rhombulus, being outraged when he spills this out.
    • When Rhombulus reveals that he let Globgor out of his prison at the coronation in order to "prove" that he and Eclipsa were evil, she calls him out and arrests him, pointing out that while the rest of the Commission doesn't trust Eclipsa either, they wouldn't go so far as to put innocent people in danger like that. She is later against Moon and the rest of the Commission's plan to align with Mina and create new Solarian warriors.
  • Women Prefer Strong Men: Given her apparent fondness for 30-year old beefcake Marco and a hinted crush on Talon Raventalon, Hekapoo seems to really enjoy the manly type.
  • Year Inside, Hour Outside: 8 minutes in other dimensions is equal to 16 years in Hekapoo's dimension, though the physical aging only lasts until you leave. Marco finds this out the hard way.

    Omnitraxus Prime 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/omnitraxus_prime.png
I'm Omnitraxus Prime! I'm the space-time guy. The time loop—that's my territory.
Voiced by: Carl Weathers

The master of space-time, watching over space-time related matters like time loops and alternate realities.


  • Affably Evil: The nicest out of the council and unlike Hekapoo and Rhombulus doesn't attack our heroes, instead simply showing up to give Star advice. He's also very patient with the princess despite her continuous refusal to simply do her work. Despite all this, he wholeheartedly joins the Commission in its worse, and shows a severe Lack of Empathy to the victims of the Solarians' rampage.
  • Alien Geometries: After placing Star in his guts, located in his torso, by hand he steps in after her.
  • Asshole Victim: Implied to have died at the series finale, but Star and Pony Head don't even care what happened to him.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: His "guts" as he puts it are a pocket dimension containing crystals that can show anything happening in other realities.
  • Celestial Body: His body is made of stars, planets and galaxies. He's introduced shrinking down from what appeared to be a background of such scenery.
  • Censor Steam: A fog bank around his waist is the closest thing to clothing he has.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Downplayed, especially up against Star, but still noticeable:
    Omnitraxus: Get up in my guts!
  • Cosmic Keystone: Glossaryck created him to prevent "the multiverse from eating itself."
  • Creature of Habit: Omnitraxus is quite obsessed with holding regular meetings. It's the biggest thing he misses when the Queen of Mewni is no longer a member of the Commission.
  • Crystal Ball: He uses one to teleconference with the Magic High Commission, probably because he's too big to fit in the room.
  • Extra Digits: He has six fingers on each hand.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite his imposing stature and appearance, Omnitraxus Prime is friendly and somewhat goofy toward those in need of his help.
  • God's Hands Are Tied: Star's misuse of her wand in "Mathmagic" threatens to destroy every parallel universe (hers included) where she exists, but he's unable to even lift a finger to aid directly since only she can put it right.
  • Horned Humanoid: And they're made out of swords, of all things.
  • Intangible Man: He can pass through solid surfaces.
  • Kick the Dog: Omnitraxus spends his scene in "Pizza Party" (his last one alive) ignoring the crowds of panicked villagers to obsess over pointless meetings.
  • The Multiverse: Heavily tied to it as the ruler of Space-Time, with his insides containing crystals that can view all timelines.
  • Noble Bigot: Compared to the rest of the council, his prejudice against monsters is less fierce and more well-intentioned, only displayed toward those he is thoroughly convinced are a threat. He is also willing to back off once it's proven otherwise, as seen in "Cornonation".
  • No Body Left Behind: His astral body dissipates when Toffee drains his power, leaving only the skull and horns.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: He voluntarily offers to help Star after Father Time drops her in his domain only to grow increasingly more outraged and disgusted by her ditzy and irresponsible behavior.
  • Pure Magic Being: His mask is the only physical part of him: The rest is made of magic.
  • The Quiet One: Has the least lines out of all the Magic High Commission.
  • Sacrificial Lion: He is the most physically imposing commission member, but is the first to be taken out by Toffee (other than Moon, who was presumably caught by surprise), and is downed in a single hit to boot. He doesn't even get the chance to fire off a single attack, and he is the only one who Lekmet never gets the opportunity to revive before disintegrating.
  • Shout-Out: His first name is similar to the Omnitrix and his name in general seems to be based off Optimus Prime, and his appearance as a giant Celestial Body with a Skull for a Head make him bear more than a passing resemblance to Admiral Perry.
  • Size Shifter: He can reduce his size from the titanic form first seen, though he's still quite large.
  • Skull for a Head: For some unknown reason despite clearly not being organic.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is spelled "Omnitraxus" in the credits of "Mathmagic", but "Omnitraxis" in Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension and The Magic Book of Spells.
  • Time Abyss: He's the oldest member of the Magic High Commission. He's so old that Glossaryck doesn't even remember exactly when he created him.
  • Time Master: Unlike Father Time who rules over regular time, Omnitraxus specializes in space-time, namely, time loops and alternate realities.

    Rhombulus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rhombulus_by_l_adamante7.png
You see all these guys? My gut told me they were evil so I crystallized them.

The captor and jailer of high-level threats to the multiverse, encasing them in crystal prisons.


  • Aesop Amnesia: He admits in "Crystal Clear" that he needs to thinks things through more and sometimes imprisons people in error. Once Eclipsa is released, Rhombulus is the most vocally insistent that she is evil and needs to be crystallized again, even though he repeatedly confuses her with someone else entirely. He remains so convinced that Eclipsa is evil that he'll commit a serious, potentially-dangerous crime just to frame her, although it admittedly wasn't his idea.
  • Animal Motifs: Snakes. He has snake hands, his shoes resemble snakes, and he has shown to be a Smug Snake throughout season 4.
  • Asshole Victim: Implied to have died at the series finale, but Star and Pony Head don't even care what happened to him.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: His friendship with Star was due to the young princess gently telling him to think things through instead of jumping to conclusions, complimenting his crystals, and keeping his crystallizing of her, Marco, his hands, and Lekmet a secret from Queen Moon and the Magic High Commission.
  • Berserk Button: Getting called a child by Glossaryck.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's a not very bright manchild, but his crystallizing powers are extremely effective at immobilizing his targets. There is no way to escape his crystal prisons unless he decides to set you free or very powerful dark magic is at play. And though his actual plan was half-baked, Rhombulus comes quite close to tricking everyone else (even Star) into letting him put Eclipsa back in a crystal.
  • Bi the Way: According to Word of Gay he was in a relationship with Lekmet until he sacrificed himself in "Starcrushed"note , and in "Butterfly Trap" he thoughtlessly blurts out his crush on Moon Butterfly when asked by the Box of Truth.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: He somehow replaced his nipples with crystals containing two brothers, one of which is evil.
  • Black and White Insanity: He froze anyone who he even though was quasi-evil (even a pizza delivery boy that had the wrong address). This reaches it's logical conclusion in "Coronation" where he's perfectly willing to put the people of Mewni in danger by releasing a potentially extremely dangerous monster if it means obtaining the excuse to permanently freeze someone he personally believes to be irredeemably evil despite all the evidence to the contrary.
  • Brought Down to Badass: The universal magic "leak" in Season 2 has severely weakened his magic, more so than those of the other members of the Magic High Commission, but his spells are still powerful enough to trap Star, Marco, and Lekmet with little trouble.
  • Butt-Monkey: Glossaryck constantly snarks at him, he utterly fails to land a hit on the guy when he tries to attack him and Hekapoo tops it off by forcing Rhombulus to sit in the corner afterwords.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: It doesn't take much questioning for Rhombulus to spill his guts, no matter how important what he wants to hide is.
  • The Caretaker: He serves as one to Lekmet. Also his boyfriend, according to Word of Gay. invoked
  • Cerebus Retcon: At first Rhombulus' irrationality, immaturity and impulsive tendency to immediately imprison anyone seen as a threat are mostly played for (somewhat dark) humor. "Cornonation" shows he can be a very serious danger, and not just to those he crystallizes.
  • Crystal Prison: One of his abilities. They're incredibly strong to the point that nobody can escape them but Glossaryck, who Rhombulus himself says is the most powerful being known.
  • Didn't Think This Through: One of his biggest flaws is not thinking before he makes a hasty decision.
  • Dumb Muscle: He was born violent and dim. His snake arms were later added by Glossaryck to make him at least act less stupidly, but he's prone to gagging or crystallizing them when they get in the way of something (usually ill-advised) that he really wants to do.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: He is known as "Time Out Guy" because of all the times the Commission has put him on time out. Doubles as an Ironic Name since his crystals function as a glorified "time out" for evildoers.
  • Fantastic Racism: Besides the whole Commissions' distrust of monsters, Rhombulus has an especially vocal contempt for Eclipsa marrying one, repeatedly labeling her a "monster-lover" or similar. Which is somewhat ironic, given he's quite monstrous-looking and has a crush on Moon.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Though the Magic High Commission had long-since proven themselves untrustworthy, Rhombulus breaks from the others and becomes actively villainous in "Cornonation", framing Eclipsa for Globgor's release (even though he thinks Globgor is a danger to everyone present) to justify imprisoning them both permanently. Although it is later revealed that he did so at the behest of Moon, following her own Face–Heel Turn.
  • Fatal Flaw: A combination of Rhombulus' poor planning, self-serving notion of justice, and immaturity often leave him not being taken seriously by the other Commission members, crystallizing possibly innocent people, and freeing Globgor to set up Eclipsa so he can have a reason to imprison them both.
  • Gemstone Assault: He can use crystals as projectiles.
  • Gem Tissue: His head is made of crystal. He also has gems that appear grown into his nipple, though they might have just been stuck on.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He's easily set off, going off on Glossaryck after a few insults.
  • Heel Realization: In "Crystal Clear", Star convinces Rhombulus that his habit of crystallizing people at the drop of a hat isn't a good thing. This doesn't stop him from attempting to frame Eclipsa for Globgor's freedom and get them both crystallized for good...not caring about the innocent people he would've hurt.
  • Heroic BSoD: Due his Heel Realization (as explained above). Star helps him through it.
  • Heroic Build: He's well-intentioned overall, and he's absolutely ripped.
  • Hypocrite: He's supposed to uphold the law, but is willing to break it to prove that Globgor and Eclipsa deserve to be imprisoned.
  • In the Hood: His cape doubles as a hood but he rarely uses it, although he does put the hood on being shamed by Moon and Star.
  • Invisible Anatomy: "Junkin' Janna" shows he can eat even though he has No Mouth, though "Pizza Party" shows him only eating through his snake hands.
  • Inspector Javert: Even more than the rest of the Commission, Rhombulus is completely convinced that Eclipsa is evil, no matter what she actually does.
  • The Jailer: His home doubles as a massive prison for all of his crystallized prisoners.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He may be short tempered with an imprison-first-ask-questions-never attitude, but he clearly cares for Lekmet. He also befriends Star rather easily once he lets her go after realizing she's not the source of the magic drain. He also appears to be the only member of the commission who feels any kind of guilt about what they have done to Meteora. Ultimately though, his redeemable traits are overshadowed by his prejudice, stubbornness, and recklessness escalating to the point of deliberately endangering people even he thinks are innocent.
  • Judge, Jury, and Executioner: His job is to find sources of evil and imprison them in crystal forever. When a target's wickedness isn't immediately apparent, he relies on his "gut," which doesn't work as much as he'd like.
  • Karma Houdini: Never gets punished for crystallizing Lekmet, which is already established as a serious offense. Ultimately, the Commission endlessly tolerating Rhombulus' carelessness avails him naught when all of them end up dead.
  • Keeping Secrets Sucks: He's chastised by Hekapoo for admitting that Meteora was given away for being a monster hybrid. He remorsefully says that he's tired of keeping the secret.
  • Knight Templar: Rhombulus will crystallize and imprison anyone he even thinks is evil. One of his prisoners is a pizza delivery guy who delivered to the wrong address.
  • Laughably Evil: Even after pulling a Face–Heel Turn, his penchant for comedy in his role as the Butt-Monkey hasn't lost its touch, such as when he sheepishly asks Hekapoo is he was off the hook after everything was resolved, only to still be arrested for what he has done. Then he has the nerve to act like an immature party animal when throwing a pizza party and hog up all the pizza to celebrate Mina overthrowing Mewni.
  • Light Is Not Good: His powers are white in color and has no problem risking the lives of others to prove his own point.
  • Manchild: He's clearly centuries old if his Imprisonment of Eclipsa is anything to go by, yet acts like a young teenager. This immaturity turns out to be down-right dangerous and appalling, as Rhombulus ultimately releases a prisoner he believes is dangerous just to prove he was right to imprison them.
  • Meaningful Name: His name seems to be derived from "Rhomboid", which is a type of geometric shape, which seems to relate to how he makes crystals.
  • Multiple Head Case: Rhombulus' snake hands have a mind of their own. In "Crystal Clear" they try to convince him that abducting Star isn't a good idea. Their origins are explained in Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension wherein Glossaryck turned Rhombulus' original limbs into "thoughtful alligators" in an effort to counteract the bruiser's innate savagery. It didn't quite take and the snakes grew to hate Glossaryck as much as Rhombulus did. When magic disappears, the snakes outlived Rhombulus, but seem to have been reduced to regular snakes intellect-wise.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Realizes how far he's taken things after he traps Lekmet in crystal.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: His attempt to frame Eclipsa for Globgor's escape leads to Globgor being freed after Eclipsa had resigned herself to keeping him imprisoned for the good of the people of Mewni. Him confronting Globgor in a very public setting causes the people to rally around the monster after they see how much he loves his wife and child, and Star publicly exposing Rhombulus' scheme causes Hekapoo and Omnitraxus to turn on him and drag him off to prison.
  • No Respect Guy: Among the council. His kidnapping of Star in hopes that she caused the magical leak are entirely to try and get them to respect him.
  • Not So Different: Despite kidnapping Star, the two find common ground in how much Glossaryck annoys them both. Also, like Star, he has a tendency to act before thinking things through.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: "Crystal Clear" reveals that for all his bumbling, he managed to somehow imprison Eclipsa long before the show started. He also crystallized Globgor, Eclipsa's colossal-sized monster lover, in a barrier that Eclipsa still can't destroy even at full power with her wand returned.
  • Power Fist: He can crystalize his snake hands to use as brass knuckles.
  • Redemption Failure: At first, Rhombulus appeared to be willing to change his ways following his initial personal encounter with Star, but once Eclipsa is set free, it's all thrown out the window, culminating in Rhombulus pulling a Face–Heel Turn in "Cornonation."
  • The Rival: Clearly hates Glossaryck. The feeling is mutual, though Glossaryck is far calmer about it.
  • Secret Keeper: He agrees to keep Star's secret about Glossaryck and the Book of Spells being lost in exchange for her keeping quiet about him kidnapping her and imprisoning Lekmet. He noticeably stutters when Hekapoo is calling out Moon on keeping the former secret once it's revealed to the Commission in "Face the Music".
  • Shock and Awe: One of his powers includes conjuring lightning through the mouths of his snake hands.
  • Smug Snake: No pun intended; his plan to frame Eclipsa and freeing Globgor shows how incompetent he is at planning things. To add insult to the injury, he did not come up with the idea of even freeing Globgor in the first place.
  • Take a Third Option: Deconstructed. He was unable to determine which of two brothers was the Evil Twin so he decided to imprison them both.
  • Token Evil Teammate: From the start Rhombulus was clearly the Magic High Commission's most reckless and irresponsible member, and eventually he resorts to an Evil Plan to release Globgor. Even after the Commission as a whole pulls a Face–Heel Turn, he's by far the most belligerent and spiteful of the lot.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Rhombulus always took his job of imprisoning possible evil seriously, even though his judgement could be skewed, and he was the closest to Star on the Commission. However, once Eclipsa gets out, Rhombulus belligerently insists on her guilt despite a lack of evidence. Once Star finds out what the Commission' did to Meteora, their friendship vanishes, and he'll readily pick a fight with her. Since then, he's gotten pettier and pettier. After Eclipsa tries to free her husband by taking over Rhombulus' body (but stops of her own accord), Rhombulus' resentment grows to the point he risked innocent people's lives just to prove he was right about Globgor and Eclipsa being evil. Needless to say, even Hekapoo and Omnitraxus are appalled at his selfish and reckless actions.
  • Ultimate Job Security: Even though Rhombulus has thoroughly proven to be a liability to the Magic High Commission because of his recklessness and trigger-happy attitude, and the numerous time-outs he's received because of that, he never loses his position.
  • The Unfavorite: The least favorite of Glossaryck among his four creations in the Magic High Commission.
  • Very Punchable Man: His status as the Butt-Monkey becomes well-deserved following his treachery in "Cornonation."
  • Visual Pun:
    • His head is a crystal. He's stubborn and refuses to relent, compromise or admit to being wrong unless he's being pressed, he's hardheaded.
    • In the episode "Butterfly Trap", when trapped inside the Box of Truth and called out by Star on the Magical High Commissions hypocrisy, he caves and admits the truth. He cracks under pressure.
  • We Used to Be Friends: He and Star established a friendship after bonding over their shared flaws, but she comes to lose respect for him and the other Commission members upon learning they erased Meteora out of existence. And whatever leftover friendliness she had for him completely disappears after he tried to frame Eclipsa for releasing Globgor.
  • The Worf Effect: Even for a member of the Magic High Commission, he should have an easy time subduing most opponents, since his crystals can keep almost anyone besides Glossaryck contained, as shown by the large number of prisoners he has managed to capture. However, he loses nearly every actual fight he's seen in, having been beaten up by Glossaryck, Toffee, Eclipsa, and Star.

Uh, elevator's on the frisk too...sorry...? But there's muffins in the lobby.
Voiced by: Josh Sussman

An employee of the Bureaucracy of Magic, working under the Magic High Commission.


  • Affably Evil: Despite his cheery demeanor, "Pizza Party" shows that he is as bigoted and selfish as the rest of the commission, with no regards for the people the Solarians threaten when celebrating a party for going back to his so called "good old days".
  • The Ageless: According to Daron Nefcy, he's worked for the commission for 542 years.
  • Audience Surrogate: In "Butterfly Trap" he stunned with shock upon the discovery that Moon and Star are not real descendants of Eclipsa.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Sean gives off an affable, dorky vibe but "Pizza Party" shows he's just as bigoted and uncaring as the rest of the Commission.
  • Butt-Monkey: In each of his appearances, he ends up getting injured or insulted in some way.
  • Cartoon Creature: He resembles some sort of cartoonish deer, looking like a non-doopy version of Lumpy.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: In "Butterfly Trap", he complains about his lack of respect from the commission.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Glossaryck was the only one to show initial respect or manners to him albeit, in a stressed tone, others have very little regard or concern for him. Moon was against using a memory-erasing spell on him but soon got over her worries.
  • I'm Standing Right Here: When he finds Eclipsa and Moon together, both the women started arguing about using a memory-erasing spell on him. During this argument, Sean is sheepishly trying to convince them to abandon this idea until Moon accidentally casts the spell.
  • Lethal Chef: Eclipsa and Star are disgusted by his homemade doughnuts. However, Tom finds them delicious.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: In "Page Turner", he is shown working multiple jobs and appearing in several places at once. Whether or not this is due to the magical fritz or Sean having abilities of his own, is unclear.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: Sean is seemingly the only employee at the Bureaucracy of Magic.
  • Nice Hat: A standard security guard hat.
  • Sole Survivor: Since he apparently isn't made completely of magic, he's the only one in the Bureaucracy of Magic who remained when magic is destroyed in the series finale. He is oblivious to the others' deaths, and it's unclear if he'll ever be able to leave the dimension they use as a base.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: Possibly. In "Page Turner", Sean works both as gatekeeper, security screener and elevator operator for the Bureaucracy of Magic building, being able to switch between those roles seemingly instantly for the sake of keeping his interactions with Glossaryck going, so he's either capable of this or there are several Seans working for the Commission, even though Glossaryck himself and others treat him as a single person.

Former/Deceased Members

    Queen Moon Butterfly 
See her folder here for tropes regarding Moon.

    Lekmet 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s2e25_lekmet_of_the_magic_high_commission.png

The elderly High Chancellor of the Commission.


  • Ambiguous Situation: It's yet to be made clear how much of a role he played in the conspiracy to erase Meteora's existence and claim to the throne, considering he was supposedly the kindest and wisest among them, but the ones to take Meteora away are constantly mentioned to have been the whole Magic High Commission.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: He apparently gets distracted by food rather easily.
  • Big Good: Rhombulus describes him as "pure-hearted" and as much of an "angel" as a goat demon can be. Given he sacrifices himself without a second thought to save Queen Moon, it's safe to say that description was accurate.
  • Blessed with Suck: Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension revealed that he was created by Glossaryck to remind the people of Mewni of "the impermanence of existence," granting him incredible magical abilities with the caveat that they'd shorten his life with each usage (His fellow Magic High Commission members, Glossaryck's other creations, do not have this handicap).
  • Cast from Lifespan: Lekmet can heal others by transferring his own life force into them. When he uses too much, he ages into a pile of dust.
  • Dented Iron: An enforced trope as Glossaryck designed him to grow frailer with time and strain.
  • Extreme Omni-Goat: Implied, given that he starts drooling when he sees an image of a tin can in a crystal ball.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Lekmet has incredible magic power, but he is only called into action in emergencies. Justified because his spells cause him to age with each use.
  • Healing Hands: He can revive the other members of the High Magic Commission from Toffee's energy drain spell, but he has to make physical contact with them and it exhausts him very quickly.
  • Healing Magic Is the Hardest: He's the only being shown to have the power to heal others, and even that has a pretty drastic limitation.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He uses his own life force to revive the other members of the Council after Toffee defeats and drains them. When Rhombulus warns him that he can't keep that up, Lekmet does so anyway and turns to dust after reviving Queen Moon.
  • Killed Off for Real: Unlike the other council members, who were restored by the end of Battle for Mewni, Lekmet's death is for keeps.
  • The Leader: Of the Magic High Commission.
  • Messianic Archetype: A pure-hearted and self-sacrificing creation of a god-like being fated to die in service of helping others which he does in the season 2 finale.
  • Morality Pet: Lekmet is the only person Rhombulus is shown to respect and never squabble with.
  • Morality Chain: Lekmet's death coincided with Rhombulus becoming much more belligerent and deranged, suggesting Lekmet was keeping Rhombulus on a tight moral leash. Hekapoo, Omnitraxus Prime and even Moon eventually go off the deep end as well, implying Lekmet was also trying to make sure they weren't Jumping Off the Slippery Slope too until his passing.
  • No Body Left Behind: When he overuses his magic he crumbles into dust, leaving behind only a single horn.
  • Our Angels Are Different: Rhombulus describes him as an "angel goat demon".
  • Out of Focus: Despite being the most powerful and important of the already powerful Magic High Commission, he's gotten the least screentime.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: When Rhombulus abducted Star without evidence of her supposed wickedness and involvement with the destabilization of the universe's magic, he is visibly irritated, and calls him out for it.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Well, goat, but his withering body and waning might were meant to serve as a symbol to the multiverse of how nothing lasts forever.
  • Support Party Member: He tends to hang back and let the other members of the High Magic Commission take the offensive while supporting them with his Healing Hands.
  • The Unintelligible: Rhombulus of all people is the only one who can understand him.
  • White Mage: He can heal other beings and even bring them back from the brink of death, but it takes a heavy toll on his body.
  • Younger Than They Look: His decrepit appearance and staggered agility might imply otherwise, but he's only the second oldest of the Magic High Commission's members. This might be because each use of his healing magic causes him to lose part of his lifespan, aging him faster in the process.

    Reynaldo the Bald Pate 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reynaldo_the_bald_pate.png
Voiced by: Ross Bryant

A bald headed giraffe man. Glossaryck created him to enforce orderliness but had to retire when Rhina the Riddled cast a spell that left him able to only speak in riddles. Now he's the ferryman on the River of Time.


  • Ambiguous Situation: Similar to Lekmet, it's unknown how much of a role he played in the conspiracy to erase Meteora's existence and claim to the throne.
  • The Bore: What people thought of apparently him. When Festivia created drinks named after the members of the Magic High Commission, Reynaldo's drink was a plain glass of water.
  • Mythical Motifs: Reynaldo's appearance immediately resembles Charon from Greek mythology. However, his oar resembles the staff of Hermes and Reynaldo is shown wearing white robes. Fittingly, Hermes is also depicted as a psychopomp.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: A result of Rhina's spell. He can speak a little without riddling or rhyming, but can't help it even when told him doing so was a big part of why he wouldn't get put back on the Commission.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He wants Glossaryk's approval so he can get back on the Commission.
  • You Talk Too Much: Glossaryk points out he's very talkative, and talking to him is the last thing you'd want.
  • You Are Not My Father: Averted. While the other members of the commission admit that Glossaryck created them, Reynaldo is the only one to actually call him father.
