Lincoln Loud:

     In general 

  • Body Snatcher: Due to complicated dimension traveling rules, the two found themselves in the body of each other.
  • Gender Bender: What seems to be this played straight is kinda zigzagged, since while their currents bodies are opposite genders, their bodies didn't so much change genders as they changed bodies.
  • Hermaphrodite: By virtue of being a male and female persona being stuck on the other's bodies, they're essentially both male and female.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: It's very complicated, but after the body switch, Lincoln and Linka are fairly masculine and feminine respectively, although while we do know Lincoln had some femininity from the start, we don't know if the same holds true for his counterpart.
  • Mystical White Hair: Well, no duh.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: Neither of them has a good opinion of each other at all: Lincoln utterly detests how Linka essentially stole his life and is in the process of ruining it altogether just to escape her own life, while Linka hates the idea of Lincoln returning to his home so much, she's willing to kill him to make sure that never happens.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: They're twins in the sense that they're both identical and from the same families, just different versions of them, and they couldn't be any more different: Lincoln is kind, loyal, with occasional selfish moments, but in the end always does the right thing. Linka is the complete opposite: Whatever occasional kind moments she may have, her arrogance, stubbornness, and especially selfishness far outweigh it.
  • Youthful Freckles: Again, it's the same deal as in the show.


     Lincoln Loud
Yes, he's a girl here.

Lincoln Loud of Dimension C-137 and the version that stars in the show, who after a short but enlightening visit to dimension 11B is knocked off course on his way back to his home reality and finds himself, or rather 'her'-self with an entirely different kind of problem.

  • 100% Adoration Rating: It's not really that crazy, but the number of people who know of her true identity and don't think she's a better Linka than the original is very few if any.
  • Action Survivor: Several hunters have been sent to card her in order to stop his status as an "anomaly" from getting worse, yet he always comes out on top.
  • Ambiguously Bi: While she has developed feelings for boys when it comes to Mrs. DiMartino, she still falls head over heels for her. She also has no problems dating Ron Andy.
  • Ambiguous Gender Identity: Trying to uphold her counterpart's girly ways, coupled with her masculine insecurity back in her home dimension, has left Lincoln very confused as to what she's supposed to be. In fact, during the time she went with Ronnie, Claudia, and Cristopher to fix what was wrong with the redhead's computer, she outright states she doesn't know what she is anymore.
  • Badass Adorable: She uses a Madolche deck when dueling. An archetype full of cake themed chibi monsters....and uses it to mope the floor with giant dragons and Lovecraftian horrors.
  • Badass Normal: Beyond the gender bender, she's still just a normal kid tasked with saving the multiverse.
  • Becoming the Mask: Everyone who knows the truth agrees that Lincoln is a far better Linka than the real Linka ever was. There's also the fact that the longer he stays in the opposite gender dimension, the more feminine he acts.
  • Beyond the Impossible: Was somehow able to eat more chocolate than all of his sisters put together, despite as Lisa points out, he literally shouldn't have been able to eat that quantity without either chocolate running out his ears, or exploding.
  • Big Eater: Is now a big enough chocoholic that he can eat more than eleven other chocoholics can eat collectively.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: If there's one of her family or friends who need help, whether in her main or in the other dimension, she'll try to help them wherever she can.
  • The Chosen One: Asked to collect a MacGuffin to save the multiverse. Not that it stops her from having some slice of life adventures on the opposite gender dimension.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Briefly at the start of the story, which eventually leads into his current situation.
  • Double Consciousness: This is a constant problem for her/him/it. Spending an extended amount of time in a different dimension where they're believed to be their counterpart, coupled with their inner self is that of a guy, means that Lincoln is basically torn between acting like his counterpart and acting like himself, especially after he discovers her real personality.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: She was given the task to gather all the fragments in order to help keep the multiverse safe. However, given William's recently... Shady actions, it's not clear if this is really what will happen. That being said, the beginning of the "Legacy" story arc has the dimension be destroyed thanks to dimensional build up, so either way, she probably would've lost either way.
  • Fatal Flaw: Skewed Priorities, as explained in more detail down below.
  • Freudian Excuse: When asked why she went to another dimension in the first place, she initially tells people she was just curious. However, right before going to confront William Cryptos, she reveals it was out of loneliness being the only boy in the family.
    • He later explains to William Cryptos that it wasn't just loneliness, but a deep-seated resentment and feeling of inadequacy towards his sisters
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Lincoln's feelings from "Making The Case" is made clearer as, at the time, he wasn't just annoyed that he didn't have a trophy. He was downright afraid that he was worthless. That there was nothing special about him compared to his sisters.
  • Light Is Good: She's the main character of the fanfic, and when confronting her counterpart in chapter 20, she has a white, glowing aura around her.
  • Living a Double Life: His primary life is that of a replica of his counterpart, Linka Loud. His other life, if it can be called that, is basically their quest to gather the fragments in order to save the multiverse.
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: The body she currently has, being Linka's original body, has a long flock of white hair.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: His initial attempts to blend in with the family comes off like this. Which arouses suspicion since the real Linka was a flat out Girly Girl. Though as time moves on and she grows more used to this life she is less this trope and more of a...
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: After six months as a girl, Lincoln finds that he has developed keen feminine interests that he never would have considered doing before, but still manages to keep up with her brothers.
  • No Periods, Period: Averted. Lincoln now understands what his older sisters go through every month better than any other man.
  • Secret Identity: Normally the Lincoln persona would be the normal identity, but thanks to the body changing shenanigans, Lincoln's male persona is his secret identity, which he needs to keep a secret to the family of Linka's dimension during most of the story, anyway.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Towards Ronnie Anne. It doesn't matter if it's the girl version or her male counterpart. Lincoln has no trouble kissing either.
  • Skewed Priorities: Instead of focusing on getting the fragments, which would supposedly save the multiverse from destruction, she spends 6 MONTHS in the 63 dimensions helping her family and friends, and looking at the world around her. Even after it becomes justified later, the fact this was in the play before the revelation is still baffling.
    • This actually becomes deconstructed in chapter 28. Because Lincoln primarily focuses on having fun at her birthday party, not only does she not immediately go after the final fragment, not only does she ignore Nyla and Neil's warning that the anomalies are building up way too much, but the dimension, and everybody in it who wasn't saved, is essentially destroyed because of it.
    • However chapter 31 reconstructs it by pointing out that it's because Lincoln spent time building relationships with her new brothers and friends that she was able to get as far as she did. If she hadn't tried bonding with Lars of Levi or Leif she never would have gotten half the fragments, her wanting to spend time with Loki and Luke saved her from hunters she might otherwise have lost to, she only got the second one because of her friendship with Ron, Claudia, and Chris, and if Chandler hadn't needed to try and win back Ron from her, then they might never have discovered where the last fragment was and Lyle would have gotten it without anyone being the wiser.
  • Small Steps Hero: She has a goal, but prefers to spend most of her time helping her family and friends first.
  • Supreme Chef: Helps make all the meals in the Loud house alongside Rita, and even taught this version of her mother how to make egg ten different ways in the same frying pan.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Lincoln isn't the strongest of her siblings, but she has the most diverse set of skills. However, this is deconstructed during her encounter with her counterpart in chapter 20: Yes, she manages to demoralize and destroy the real Linka's motivation with ease, but that means zilch when Linka has enough strength to hurt her through reality.

For tropes concerning Linka, see their entry under Spoiler characters.

The Loud Family of Dimension 63i'\:

    In general 
  • Break the Cutie: Most of the family suffered this in the Freudian Excuse said below, but some of the brothers suffer this again, and in a worse magnitude, when they see how Linka really is like.
    • The parents get their turn at this when they discover the Awful Truth about Lincoln and his counterpart.
  • Broken Pedestal: The revelation of how their parenting turned Linka into a jerk hits them pretty hard, to say the least.
  • Dysfunctional Family: You thought the Louds from the prime dimension were messed up? These ones are even more so: A strict father and passive mother who overly dote their daughter, a set of insecure sons who were forced to act like their sister was the most important thing in the world, and a daughter who's not only a selfish sociopath, but who's entirely willing to ditch them, replace Lincoln and outright ruin his life in order to satisfy herself. Yeah; these Louds are messed up.
  • Freudian Excuse: A long time ago, Loki got into some gang trouble and the teenagers broke into his house, and hurt Linka while Lane was able to hide away with Lars. This got him sent to military school and the parents to force their sons to dote on and treat their sister as the most important thing in their lives.
  • Sole Survivor: Implied. The parents and the Loud brothers (and Linka) are the only d63i'\ characters confirmed to have come with the hunters to the citadel, without any sort of evidence that anybody else came, or even survived, the overrun of anomalies. Ultimately d63i'\ is restored to normal so subverted.

     Loki Loud 

Lori's counterpart, and the military leader of the boys.

  • The Atoner: Has spent the past six years making it up to his sister for his part in the incident.
  • Aloof Big Brother: Has started turning into this ever since Lincoln revealed his true identity to him.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Given what he's been trained to do, it's a given that he knows ho to deal with various situations.
  • Heel Realization: He realises that it was because he and his family treated Linka like the world revolved around her that she turned out the way she did.
  • Military Brat: Spent four years in a military academy for his involvement in the incident. Though they turn out to be the best years of his life since he loved it, becoming a top cadet and coming back with a ton of useful skills that he uses constantly.
  • Sanity Slippage: He does not take finding out whats happened to his baby sister particularly well. He takes finding out what she's really like and realising that everything he did to make up for his mistakes was All for Nothing even less well.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Judging by the way he pointed a loaded rifle at an alternate version of his kid brother, I'd say he would.
  • The Worf Effect: He's basically the only brother with military training, and yet Trevor cards him without any problem. This is justified, because Loki was caught off-guard against technology he didn't know anything about. Later, when confronted by Alex and Aeif in the woods, Loki is better prepared and actually defeats the two.

    Loni Loud 

Leni's Counterpart here.

  • Dumb Blonde: And he both knows, and hates it.
  • Fashion Designer: Deconstructed. Loni is as skilled a clothing designer as a counterpart to Leni Loud should be, and has even won his club more awards than he can count on both hands note . However while he is skilled at the artistic aspects of the fashion industry, he admits to knowing nothing about the competitive or business sides. He has no idea how to sell his work, and his naive nature has led to rivals in competitions stealing his designs.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: While how much of his stupidity is a faćade is unknown, he's at least smart enough to know that he's not the smartest tool in the shed, and the consequences of trying out a job at the fashion industry.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Same deal as his female counterpart.
  • Odd Friendship: Forms one with Lynn, over sharing the same normally feminine hobbies.


    Luke Loud 

Luna's Counterpart and Lincoln's Secret-Keeper through the "Revelations" arc.

  • Delinquent Hair: Has a Mohawk till chapter 27, after which he's started wearing his hair neat.
  • Face of a Thug: He looks like the epitome of a rock and roll fan, Mohawk and all. One of his establishing moments has him looking after his baby brother, then singing gentle songs to his sister when she's sick.
  • Screw Yourself: He's dating Nyla, another version of himself from another reality. It is pointed out several times however that alternate selves are not related and while confusing, is not incest. Not that it makes it any less mind boggling.
  • Secret-Keeper: As the counterpart of his favourite sister, he is the first one Lincoln trusts when she tells him about his true identity.
  • The Rock Star: If his battle against Nyla is any indication, he's great at music. Though he is more geared towards heavy metal, over Luna's soft rock.

    Lane Loud 

Luan's counterpart.

  • Consulting Mister Puppet: Like Luan, Lane will use Mrs Coconuts to say what he can't.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Was home with Lars and Linka six years ago when "the incident" happened. He hid himself and Lars in a closet while the thugs attacked Linka, forcing himself to stay there and keep his little brother safe while Linka begged for him to come and help her.
  • Dirty Coward: He's seen himself as this ever since the incident, specially given the fact he failed to protect his Linka.
  • Sad Clown: A given, seeing how he was one of those affected by the incident years ago.
  • Vulgar Humour: In the first two weeks of Lincoln being in dimension 63, Lane literally told 69 sex jokes. Though he only ever uses these when talking to his sister in order to push her away, because he feels he doesn't deserve to be her brother..

     Lynn Loud Jr. the 8th 

Lynn's counterpart here, and the Ballet Dancer brother!

  • Accidental Pervert: Keeps accidentally catching his sister when she's less than decent.
  • Ballet Episode: His focus chapter reveals he does Ballet and Dance in his free time.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: The closest he's ever came to getting angry with his sister, was when he told her not to dare call him Lynn Junior Junior. Unfortunately Loni figured it out at the same time and called him it anyway.
  • Hidden Depths: He keeps his feminine side a secret for a good reason: he's afraid of his brother's judgment.
  • Lineage Comes from the Father: Odd example. He was named after his dad. However his father was named after his grandmother. Lynn is actually a family name from his grandmother's side of the family. Junior's official title is "Lynn the 8th"
  • Nosebleed: He is the unfortunate receiver of most embarrassing moments with his sister.
  • Odd Friendship: Forms one with Loni, since they share interests in commonly feminine hobbies.

    Lars Loud 

Lucy's Counterpart and a storywriter.

  • Author Avatar: Most of what he says when talking about writing are based on the author's trials and tribulations while writing this very story.
  • Adaptational Dye-Job: While it's an ongoing debate whether Lucy dies her hair or has natural black hair, Lars is confirmed to be a natural blond.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His affinity for the dark come from his earliest memory were he remembers Lane hugging him in a dark place and telling him everything would be OK.
  • Not So Stoic: Curls into a ball and openly starts crying like any other little kid upon finding out that the sister that was finally wanting to spend time with him after years of telling him he was creepy wasn't even his real sister.

    Leif Loud 

Lana's Counterpart, and card game master!

  • Author Avatar: Every time he talks about card games.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Inverted. He has been raised since birth to consider his big sister to be the most important person in the house and someone that must be protected at all costs, even at the risk of his own life.

     Lexx Loud 

Lola's much nicer counterpart.

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Just before walking in on Lincoln reading comics in her underwear, he seemed ready to beg her to join the play.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He can be a bit of a jerk at times, but his heart is in the right place. At least one thing is for sure: He's nicer in general than Lola.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Lexx is, obviously, the hero of the play in Chapter 2
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: If Nala is who we think she is, Lana's anomaly counterpart in 63i'\ this is definitely the case.
  • Blackmail: When he walks in on Lincoln reading comics in her underwear (Something she's not allowed to do), he threatens this if she doesn't join the play.

    Levi Loud 

Lisa's counterpart and a fan of Sci-Fi.

  • Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: Zigzagged, or maybe even downplayed. Like Lisa, he's capable of building machinery and gadgets you'd expect from an older scientist, and does provide Lincoln some aid in creating the GLaDOS lookalike. Unlike Lisa, that's basically where his help ends, and he doesn't really do anything else for the majority of the story.
  • Child Prodigy: A deconstruction of sorts. Like his counterpart Lisa, Levi is this trope turned up to eleven, and has a ton of achievements and degrees. However he points out that getting all of these achievements in the short amount of time he's been alive is a staggering amount of work. He's pressured to use his gift constantly by either those who wish to see him fail, or use it for their own needs. Despite being proud of his accomplishments, he still wishes he was allowed to be just an ordinary four year old sometimes.
  • Closet Geek: Despite being a classical nerd in every other way, Levi feels the need to hide his love of comics and Sci-Fi culture due from his * family and peers.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When talking to Lincoln about why he's at the convention, he plainly calls her "sis". Something Lincoln found serious since he usually refers to her as "sister" or "elder sibling".
  • Not So Stoic: When Lincoln catches him at the sci-fi conventions, he opens up to her about his troubles.
    • He starts to break down when he finds out that the sister he poured his heart out to wasn't actually his real sister.

    Leon Loud 

Lily's Counterpart, nuff said.

  • Acceptable Feminine Goals and Traits: While not completely in charge of him, Lincoln has show herself to be be capable of taking care of him.
  • Babies Make Everything Better: If Chapter 16 is any indication, this is the case.
  • Big Sister Worship: Lincoln was tasked with caring for Leon by herself more than any of the Loud girls were made to take care of Lily on their own. So Leon is far closer to Lincoln than any of his brothers, or Lily is to the girls.
  • Cuteness Overload: He starts teleporting in Chapter 16 because he absorbed some of the fragment's power. He proceeds to have fun with Linka, uses his powers to go to the play park and asks his big sister to push him on a swing.
  • Goo-Goo-Godlike: Briefly gets like this after he absorbs a bit of the fragment's power.

     Lynn Loud Sr. the 7th 

  • Abusive Parents: An unintentional example on his part; his favoritism and spoiling of his daughter turned her into a monster. While his sons have grown increasingly more insecure and conflicted over what they want to do with their life, and favoring Linka completely destroyed her brothers' self-confidence.
  • Bumbling Dad: Not as prone to this as his C-137 counterpart, but he still has his moments.
  • Fantasy-Forbidding Father: If any of his son's hobbies or dreams conflict with his opinion (being too girly), he'll forbid his sons from doing it. This is deconstructed, because by doing this, his sons have grown increasingly more insecure and conflicted over what they want to do with their life.
  • Overprotective Dad: Towards Linka to the point he makes his sons chaperone her wherever she goes. This is also deconstructed, as this is the exact reason that Linka refuses to go back to her former life.
  • Parental Favouritism: Blatantly favours his daughter more than his sons. Though his real daughter came to resent it with how suffocating it was.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: It doesn't matter how much more of a strict or authoritative father he has become to his children, all his daughter has to do is give him one of these and say "please daddy" and he gives in every time.
  • Supernatural-Proof Father: So far has absolutely no idea about the fragments, nor anything about the whole "multiverse is in danger" thing. It takes up the "Legacy" arc before he gets to discover any of this.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: He never got on with his dad when he was younger, and left home years prior after having a fight with him over Rita. When they finally reunite again, it takes the intervention of his own sons to help the two reconcile.

    Rita Loud 

  • Almighty Mom: She tries to be when her husband goes too overboard, but not only does it only work when she says his full name, but given how much control Lynn Sr. has had a lot of control over their children, coupled with her own passiveness, means that it's very rare for her to be this.
  • Gamer Chick: Revealed to have been one before her growing family and responsibilities forced her to set the controller aside.
  • Lineage Comes from the Father: Inverted. If the C-137 version of Rita has this versions affinity for video games, then Lincoln inherited more than his looks from his mother's side of the family.
  • Pushover Parents: In stark contrast to her husband's overprotective ways, Rita herself hasn't really done anything to either help her children or stop her husband from making them even more insecure than they already are.
  • Women Are Wiser: Played with. She knows how to curb her husband's strict tendencies in order to let her children grow and be happy. However doing so is admittedly a recent development, and she admits that she's liked how he ran the household for the years proceeding the Incident

Other notable characters from Dimension 63:

     In general 
  • Ambiguous Situation: The Loud family from dimension 63 are the only confirmed characters to have escape the dimension before it was overrun, but there's nothing indicating everybody else died. And ultimately subverted when everything is restored to normal.
  • Mauve Shirt: Most of these characters have had some sort of Character Development and interaction with the cast to make them stand out from being minor characters. However, it's possible (though unconfirmed) if any of them survived their home dimension being overrun by anomalies. And ultimately subverted when everything is restored to normal.

    Ronald Andres Nicolao-Prospero Garcia-Shapiro Santiago 

  • Geeky Turn-On: Finding out his would be girlfriend enjoys being at a sci-fi con makes him consider giving his relationship with Lincoln a chance.
  • Jerk Jock: What he was before he met Linka.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Surprisingly not to Lincoln, but to the real Linka.
  • In-Series Nickname: Ron Andy.
  • Official Couple: Was once this with Chandler; is now this with Lincoln.
  • Overly-Long Name: See above.
  • Stereotype Reaction Gag: Is a little offended at Lynn Sr's assumption that he has a long name because he's a Latino, which he reveals he does have moments later.

     Bebe Santiago 

  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Loves wrestling and taught Lincoln that just because she's a girl doesn't mean she can't like boy things.
  • Love Freak: Loves the idea of her little brother dating her own boyfriend's little sister, and is resolved to make them as perfect a couple as herself and Loki. With varying levels of success. note 

     Claudia Mc Bride 

  • Beta Couple: With Cristopher.
  • Only Friend: She's implied to have been Linka's only one and vice versa... and Linka wasn't the best friend to her either.


  • Beta Couple: With Claudia.
  • Brain Bleach: Given what he's seen on his computer... he needed some of this before chapter 19 fixed it.
  • Butt-Monkey: One of the fragments decided to bombard him with the worst of Loud House rule 34 the internet in other realities had to offer solely for its own amusement
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Still redheaded and still a friend to Lincoln and Ron Andy
  • Rage-Breaking Point: After everything he's been forced to put up with, what sets him over the edge is the fragment trying to get Claudia to look at what he's been put through herself.


Anomaly Elimination Unit

An organisation dedicated to preserving the multiverse by preventing the spread of anomalies... no matter what it takes.

     Nyla Uold 

    Nell Uold 

Leni's counterpart from dimension EX-196

  • Badass Adorable: Every bit as sweet as Leni, but is she's class two hunter for a good reason.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: She really didn't seem to enjoy her job much.
  • Promoted to Parent: Along with Nyla as they take care of the two junior former hunters stranded in 63'i/ with them.

    Aeif Luod 

Leif/ Lana's counterpart from dimension TX-121

  • Defiant to the End: Even when facing down a loaded rifle, she can't resist being a smartass as she takes a crack at Loki.
  • Exact Words: When Loki demands that she "tell him something he doesn't know", she tells him where to find and how to use soap.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Would rather be a normal kid than a hunter, but knew how important the job was.

    Alex Aoud 

Lola/ Lexx's counterpart from dimension RX-64

  • Dark and Troubled Past: Comes from a dimension where "the incident" took a turn for the worse. Most of his family died and Loki was left as their guardian, who would beat him enough that he developed a deep seated hatred of his brother and all alternate versions of him.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Would rather be a normal kid than a hunter, but agreed to be one if it meant he could hunt down his brother again and again.

    Trevor Mc Field 

A hunter from dimension CX-135, and the first hunter encountered.

  • Even Evil Has Standards: While he still carded him, Trevor made it clear that he hated having to seal Leon away because he was an anomaly.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: "Friend" might be too strong a word, but he definitely doesn't seem to be well-liked; After being de-carded, the hunters he was uncarded with do absolutely nothing to help him, and the person who freed them, Loki, makes it very clear he doesn't care for his opinions at all.
  • Honour Before Reason: Claims that his home dimension placed honour above all else. Though Loki is easily able to poke holes in his claims of honour by pointing out that he basically took everyone he hunted by surprise, and resorted to cheap tactics to get a one up of Lincoln.
  • Odd Name Out: So far the only hunter who isn't an anagram of one of the Loud children's, nor does he seem to have any relation to them at all.

    Lyle Loud 

Lily/Leon's counterpart from dimension ZX-289.

  • Always a Bigger Fish: The only one she has to answer to is the commander of the AEU.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Easily the most dangerous hunter introduced in the fic (not that the last few left expectations high) and when she's introduced, things take a turn for the worst.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She became a hunter after losing her entire family, including her version of Lincoln, whom she was very close to.
  • The Dreaded: Part and parcel with being a class three hunter.
  • Master Swordsman: She is a highly skilled swordsman. Which she uses as her preferred hunting field, 'Sogen'.
  • Older Alter Ego: Comes from a world where the birth order of the Loud kids was reversed.

    Colin Dullon 

Commander and head honcho of the Anomaly Elimination Unit, and a counterpart to Lincoln Loud.

  • He Is All Grown Up: Colin looks like a fully grown version of Lincoln, and is good looking enough to make the girls react in the same manner as they did with Hugh.
  • Honor Before Reason: Forces Lyle to accept Lincoln's challenge for the fragment she has, despite Lyle pointing out how easy it would be to overpower them and how close they are to the CORE, because that's the rules.
  • Noodle Incident: The AEU used to have more versions of Lincoln in it, but after an 80's version of himself impersonated the commander and used his position to create a mess that they're still clearing up to this day, they've been put to a minimum.

Spoiler Characters:

    William Cryptos 

Mysterious, otherworldy being who appears to Lincoln shortly after he becomes stranded in another world, in order to help him return home.

Counterpart of Lincoln Loud.

  • Ambiguously Evil: It's hard to say on who's side he's on. All we know is that he's on his own side. It's not so ambiguous now.
  • Ambiguously Human: One of the forms he takes is that of a tall humanoid, but being a shapeshifter, this might not even be his true form.
  • Big Bad: For the "Legacy" arc
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Forms one with Linka, but it's very clear it's a very teeth-clenched one. And one he's very glad to get rid of once Linka has no more use for him.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: He supposedly chose Lincoln in order to save the multiverse, but he also chose Linka to get the final fragment and distract the sisters from becoming a pain to his plan. The fact his plans apparently involve a perfect world, and yet they're a complete mystery, doesn't help matters.
  • The Chooser of the One: He explicitly chose Lincoln in order to gather all four fragments in order to save the multiverse. Likewise, he chose Linka to help him accomplish his goals.
  • Climax Boss: He's one for the whole story, since everything up to the "Legacy" arc was part of a plan that would let him recreate the universe into a perfect utopia. Essentially, his defeat means that the story is truly over.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite his usual demeanor, he seems quite angry at Linka when she mentions how she plans to abandon her current family and with the power he will give her, go to a 'perfect world' where she's a girl again and has sisters who treat her how she wants.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He got along fine with his sister, at least up until she died. So much, in fact, his main plan is primarily based about recreating the universe to get her to come back.
  • Evil Counterpart: He is the evil version of Lincoln who knocked Lincoln off course and started this whole mess.
  • Final Boss: Of the "Legacy" story arc, and the story as a while.
  • The Chessmaster: Played Lincoln and Linka like fiddles.
  • Deal with the Devil: He's the devil making the deal with Linka.
  • Expy: Cryptos is a play on the word 'cryptography', the practice of hiding information in a way that might need a 'cipher', and a common nickname for someone named William is 'Bill'.
  • Didn't Think This Through: He seemingly completely forgets that, being a version of Lincoln, making the fragment incapable of harming him also means it can't hurt Lincoln either.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: He definitely doesn't seem to be a heroic figure, and his true goals are, as of this point, utterly unknown. The Legacy arc confirms that his goal is to create a perfect world.
  • Impossible Task: Has unknowingly set himself one as his grand plan. He wants to create a perfect universe, not just his interpretation of a perfect universe, but an absolutely perfect universe. However since Perfection Is Impossible, no matter how much power he has he will never be able to do it. Given how he looks in chapter 33, he's started to feel the effects of trying to do something he just can't do.
  • Ironic Echo: Like Loki, he wants Lincoln to replace his lost sister.
  • A Lighter Shade of Black: Compared to Linka. He is more dangerous than she is, but for the mayority of the story he appears more sympathetic athan her.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He doesn't show it much, but when he does put some effort into it, William is an incredibly sleek manipulator.
  • Mystical White Hair: His humanoid form has white hair. Which makes sense since he's another version of Lincoln.
  • Odd Name Out: Despite being a counterpart to Lincoln, his name is neither an anagram or related to his name at all.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: His hatred of Linka counts, since he's a counterpart of Lincoln.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Why didn't he restore Lincoln's true gender like he did Linka's? He see's female Lincoln as the perfect replacement for his long dead sister.
  • Sanity Slippage: Failing at his dream of creating a perfect universe ten thousand times before the story started has left William more than a little upset and unhinged. And during the "Legacy" arc, he becomes even worse.
  • Save the Villain: He loses the final challenge against Lincoln and thus his dreams of creating the perfect world are gone for good, but Lincoln decides to give William a new home where his sister still lives.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Has been nothing but polite, pleasant and helpful to Lincoln. While Linka brings out a more vicious and irritable side, with how thoroughly he has grown to hate her and having to work with her.
  • Tom the Dark Lord: The main antagonist of the fic, who wishes to create a perfect world, who goes by the name of... William.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: His plan involves creating a perfect world. The fact that he's willing to deal with Linka to get it is proof enough at how far he's willing to go to fulfill his plan.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: What he sees himself as anyway.
  • Wildcard: Who's side he's on, if he's even on a side at all, is a mystery.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: This is basically what he does to Linka after she has gotten William all of the fragments. And just when it seems that he's going to give Linka that world she's wanted for so long and not answer for any of her sins or screwing up Lincoln's life for her own happiness, William decides to banish her off to the Sahara Desert to die after her work is done.

     Linka Loud 

The real Linka Loud who due to an accident ending up swapping bodies and realities with Lincoln.

  • Acceptable Feminine Goals: To keep her safe, her parents were raising her so she could become a housewife over getting a job where she might have been hurt or killed. She in fact resents their attempts to make her a "Happy Hannah Homemaker". Which is one of the reasons she refuses to come home.
  • Accuser of the Brethren: Yeah, remember how her whole family has essentially spend the last couple of years of their lives doing her every whim after the traumatic incident? She doesn't care about it, she just wants to get as far away from them as possible.
  • All for Nothing: Linka fought so hard to get the perfect world she wanted, where she'd have ten sisters instead of brothers, and despite all of her ambition and cunning, and even turning her back on the people who loved her just for that perfect world. She lost everything, and as of Chapter 30's conclusion, it was all for naught; she's not only lost everything, but her punishment for all of her sins is being sent to the Sahara Desert to die by William's hand. Although her Karmic Death is subverted in the epilogue, as she turns out alive, even though she's still hit by Laser-Guided Karma.
  • All Take and No Give: Her relationship with her real family consisted entirely of her being spoiled giving nothing in return. She tries to establish the same kind of relationship with the Loud Sisters.
  • Anti-Role Model: Lazy, selfish, uncaring, ungrateful, and just an all around douchebag.
  • Asshole Victim: William betrays her after getting all four fragments he needs to create his perfect world by turning her back into a girl and sending her to the Sahara Desert to die. Seeing this came after all the atrocities she did in the story, she barely garners any sympathy.
  • Ax-Crazy: While it's not known whether she was this before the incident, the Linka we see is one from after it, and seeing some of her questionable decisions, she definitely fits this trope.
  • Berserk Button: Attempting to try and force her to go back to her old home is going to quickly summon her wrath.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With William, though she makes it clear she's not on his side.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She may look cute on the outside, but inside's a person you DON'T want to meet.
  • Book Dumb: After they've switched, one of the many things Lincoln is better at than her is getting good grades.
  • Broken Pedestal: Loki, Lars, and Luke all get to see up and front how she truly is as a person, and this revelation utterly breaks them.
  • Climax Boss: Serves as one or several for Lincoln, since her defeat means he can finally return home in his body without fearing for his life. However, unlike most examples, Lincoln doesn't deal the final blow to her, William gets the honor.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Different ones, courtesy of the story having Multiple Endings. ( Chapter 36, she is returned home to dimension 63, where her parents immediately send her off to an aunt and uncle in South-Dakota to learn some discipline. In chapter 37, Lincoln permanently takes her place in dimension 63 and sends her to dimension 11B as a boy so she has to endure the torment Lincoln went through when he was in that dimension. In chapter 38 she becomes a boy again and is first sent to military academy before being arrested by the A.E.U.
  • Cute Is Evil: She's a female version of Lincoln, of course she's gonna be cute! But she's also a massive jerk.
  • Creepy Child: What else can you call a girl who shows no guilt in destroying the life of an alternate version of her?
  • Deliberate Injury Gambit: Throws himself down the stairs to distract the girls from saving Lincoln. Then takes it up to eleven when she threatens to maim and cripple her current body if they try to make Lincoln and her swap back.
  • Determinator: If she sets her sights on some goal, NOTHING will stop her from achieving it.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Okay, it's one thing to wanting your family to stop spoiling you worse than a ton of candy can spoil your teeth, but is it really necessary to abandon them and steal your counterpart's life?!
  • Dragon with an Agenda: She's technically working with William ever since they made a deal, but it's very clear she has her own, very separate goals from him.
  • Dying Alone: Her actions alienated her from every person who ever loved her. In Chapter 30, William sends her to the Sahara Desert, fully expecting her to die there.
    • Subverted. She's (somehow) still alive, but in chapter 36, is sent to Dakota, to her aunts and uncles. And in chapter 37, Lincoln permanently takes her place in dimension 63 and sends her to dimension 11B as a boy so she has to endure the torment Lincoln went through when he was in that dimension. In chapter 38 she becomes a boy again and is first sent to military academy before being arrested by the A.E.U.
  • Embodiment of Vice: She basically embodies envy; once she discovered how Lincoln's life in his dimension was (comparatively) better than her own, she decided to stay with his life and do everything she can in order to keep it. Seeing how she's also obsessed with the pleasure of having a new life, as well as her inflated opinion of herself, you could also say she embodies lust and pride.
  • Enfant Terrible: She isn't much older than her counterpart, so she should be around 11, and yet look at what she's done up to this point. Hint: It's not something very nice.
  • Entitled Bitch: She certainly gives off this vibe, believing she deserves better than a family of brothers who let her down and spoiled her rotten.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Sort of. She does care for her family to an extent, but not only did their spoiling of her annoyed her, but the family in the prime dimension is so much better in her opinion. She drops it over the course of the story however.
  • Evil Counterpart: Take a guess to who she's this.
  • Evil Reactionary: Her primary motivation for taking over Lincoln's life is based around desiring to go back to the times before her dimension's "incident" that changed her family forever.
  • Evil Is Petty: As said above, her motivation for taking Lincoln's place is because she grew tired of the suffocating nature of her family spoiling her. However, the way she lives Lincoln's life (and later outright states) tells us it's not so much the fact they were spoiling her, but the fact they weren't doing it the way she wanted them to.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Being a counterpart to Lincoln, you wouldn't think she's an evil jackass from looks alone, but the other tropes are here for a reason...
  • The Fake Cutie: She puts on a cute facade that hides her selfish, psychopathic personality.
  • Fatal Flaw: Impulsivity. She took over Lincoln's life almost immediately in order to not return to her home dimension, and the instant she even thinks something might happen that will derail her plan, she'll do anything it takes to undo it.
  • Fate Worse than Death: After getting William the fragments, she's teleported to the Sahara Desert. So now she's stranded in an unknown location, with no contacts to her family, and basically no allies or anybody that can help her get out of her current situation.
    • Chapter 36 reveals she does escape this (somehow), but the family send her away to Dakota to live with her aunts and uncles.
    • In Chapter 37, another version of Linka is turned back into a boy and has switched places with 11B Lincoln. Making her live with versions of her brothers who treat him as bad as she treated her own versions.
    • Finally, in Chapter 38, she's given the most poetically just punishment of all. The real version of Linka is permanently switched places with Lincoln, and is sent to the same military school that Lynn had been threatening his other children with for all these years if they didn't protect her.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She's only nice and kind because she's acting like Lincoln. In reality, she's a selfish sociopath.
  • Forced Transformation: Downplayed when William turns her back into a girl. Seeing as she shares the same body type as Lincoln, the only notable change to her is her lack of muscles.
    • Played straight in chapter 37 when she's forced to be male again, and permanently this time in dimension 11B.
    • Again in chapter 38 when she once more becomes a boy, and is send to military school by her parents.
  • Freudian Excuse: Subverted. On paper, she does have what would be a decent Freudian Excuse. When she was younger, a trio of ruffians broke into the house while the family was away and badly beat her up, with Lane and Lars only managing to survive thanks to hiding in a closet, without helping her. However, the narration makes it clear that it's not the main reason why she became what she is now. The main reason why she's evil isn't because of this incident, it's because her family treated her like a princess afterwards to forgive themselves and she's basically an Hypocrite and an Ungrateful Bitch. Also deconstructed as no one has any sympathy for her after the truth comes out since she kinda went totally psycho.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Claudia was her only friend in her own world, but even she admits that Linka wasn't all that good a friend to begin with before Lincoln took over.
  • Girly Girl: To the degree that even the slightest bit of boyish behaviour was suspicious to once Lincoln took over.
  • Hated by All: The only friend she ever had considers her a bad friend, her brothers have grown resentful over the fact she's so blatantly favored over them, and it's likely that anybody else would probably not be able to tolerate her enough to become friends with her. And that's in her home dimension; in the other dimension, everybody else only remotely cares about her because she's acting like Lincoln. It goes to the point that even her own counterpart despises her!
  • Hate Sink: The latest chapters really want you to hate her: After all, she abandoned her family, she's ruining her counterpart's life, and worst of all, her ultimate goal seems to be reaching an Utopian world where she's a girl and has 10 sisters spoiling her rotten.
  • The Hedonist: She wants to live a life of pure pleasure and no responsibility.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Was sent to military school as punishment for her actions and for some much needed disipline. However even after graduating she was 'still' arrested by the A.E.U. Though given the fact she apparently didn't learn anything at the academy and continues to be the same as ever, they likely felt they had to.
  • Hypocrite: Claims that she wants freedom from her overprotective brothers who allowed their whole lives to revolve around her. However since the swap, she has been working Lincoln's sisters into making the same concessions for her that her own brothers did, indicating that the type of freedom she wants is 'freedom' from responsibility, as she likes how little her "new parents" expect out of their son.
    • This becomes even more blatant when her true goal is revealed: she wants to live in a world where she's a girl and has 10 sisters who do her every whim. In other words, she doesn't so much wants to be free from the exhausting aura as she wants to live a life of pure pleasure and no responsibility.
  • It's All About Me: From stealing her counterpart's life and changing it to her whim, to refusing to return to her home simply because she didn't like it there anymore, to even promising to kill her counterpart in order to keep his life, it's rather clear that when it comes to priorities, Linka only has her own best interests in mind.
  • I Regret Nothing: She apologises for nothing. She a hundred percent meant to do everything she did and her only regret is that she was caught.
  • Irony: The reason she stole Lincoln's life was that her home life was incredibly suffocating, with her whole family spoiling her and catering to her every whim. Keep in mind how Lincoln is hit pretty hard with the Middle Child Syndrome, and you'd expect her to be horrified at the memories of the syndrome. Instead, she's outright delighted.
    • As we later find out, William is the Evil Lincoln counterpart that Lincoln saw earlier in the story. However, by all intents and purposes, Linka is far worse than him in every regard. Essentially, she's a more fitting evil counterpart to Lincoln than his actual evil counterpart.
  • Jerkass: Selfish to a point, and utterly remorseless about the stuff she's doing to Lincoln's life.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • She's an absolute jerk, no doubt about it, but she is right in that her home life in her dimension, before Lincoln changed things up, was pretty dang suffocating, specially with someone as overprotective and controlling as her parents.
    • She also kinda loosely has a point that the way her parents raise their kids leaves a lot to be desired. Not only did it give her the personality that makes her the monster she is but it's completely destroyed her brothers' self-confidence; when the Lynn Sr. and Rita of Lincoln's native dimension find out what their counterparts have been up to, they're horrified and waste no time calling them out.
  • Karmic Death: She took over Lincoln's life, threatened to kill his body if he tried to take it back, betrayed all the people who loved her and would have killed Lincoln's sisters and her siblings to get the four fragments, all in order to get her "perfect life" where she would be surrounded by ten sisters carrying out her every whims. In Chapter 30, William sentences her to die alone in the middle of the Sahara desert.
    • Subverted. Chapter 36 revealed she's still alive; however her family send her to Dakota to live with her aunts and uncles, for some much needed discipline. And in chapter 37, Lincoln permanently takes her place in dimension 63 and sends her to dimension 11B as a boy so she has to endure the torment Lincoln went through when he was in that dimension.
  • Kids Are Cruel: Especially if the kid is willing to ruin his counterpart's life without feeling remorse for it.
  • Kill and Replace: Is willing to kill Lincoln if he tries to take his life back from her.
  • Lack of Empathy: As the other tropes should make clear, she doesn't have empathy for her counterpart, whose life she's ruining, or her own family, whom she abandoned.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: By the end of Chapter 30, according to Word of God, all of the horrible things that she's done: holding Lincoln's body hostage and threatening to kill his body if he tried to take his life back or if his sisters interfered, pretty much making Lincoln's sisters her slaves, and overall ruining his life at long last come back to bite her in the ass, and it bites her hard, too.
  • Killed Off for Real: By William's hand, she is sent to the Sahara Desert to die, which means everything she's worked for, everything Linka planned for her dream world, deserting her own family, people who genuinely loved her, just for the sake of her happiness... it was All for Nothing and it's highly unlikely she'll be missed by anyone.
    • Chapter 36 however reveals she's apparently still alive. She's however not left unpunished, and is send to Dakota to live with her Aunts and Uncles, for some much-needed discipline. And in chapter 37, Lincoln permanently takes her place in dimension 63 and sends her to dimension 11B as a boy so she has to endure the torment Lincoln went through when he was in that dimension
  • Longer-Than-Life Sentence: Her collar will come off when she's redeemed herself for her crimes...however her crimes are 'so' severe that it was stated she could cure all disease and bring about world peace and the collar still wouldn't come off in her lifetime.
  • Middle Child Syndrome: While it can be assumed this was played straight before the incident, it's definitely inverted after it, since everybody in her family is highly concerned about her needs.
  • Mood-Swinger: One moment, she can be coldly rejecting her brothers, and the next one, she's promising her counterpart she'll kill him and take his place. Yeah, she qualifies.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Downplayed. She doesn't turn into a bodybuilder or anything, but she visibly gains quite a bit of muscles thanks to Pop-Pop's training, which she puts to good use in order to knock Lincoln right out of the conversation.
  • Never My Fault: Dislikes her family controlling favoritism to her, but she never did anything about it when she could.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: She's the personal enemy of Lincoln since she ruined his life, but she never takes an active role until the citadel.
  • Orcus on His Throne: For most of the story, all she really does is relax in Lincoln's life and doesn't take an active role in her antagonism. At least William does something, but Linka doesn't bother doing anything until the citadel.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: In the end, Linka manages to gather all four fragments for William to use, but along the way, she alienated every single possible ally she may have had, ruined the life of her own counterpart, and is most likely going to be executed for her crimes when she gets back... Except she won't, because soon afterward, William sends her to the Sahara Desert to die.
  • Reassigned to Antarctica: Gets sent to the Sahara Desert by William when her usefulness to his plan officially expires.
  • Redemption Rejection: In chapter 40 she makes it perfectly clear she does not regret what she's done, continues to push the blame onto others, and refuses the offer to join the A.E.U as a form of attonment.
  • The Resenter: Resented her family for controlling of her.
  • Restraining Bolt: Fitted with one by the A.E.U in chapter 38, so if she steps out of line again, she'll be sealed into a card automatically.
  • Self-Harm: She tumbles down the stairs and breaks her arm in order to distract her "sisters," and if her threat is anything to go by, she's willing to go to life-threatening lengths if necessary.
  • Self-Made Orphan: She comes very close to this trope during the climax, when she (or rather, a copy of her used by William as one of his guards) tries to kill her own parents.
  • Shadow Archetype: She's basically what Lincoln would be if he had no redeeming qualities and his bad attributes, mostly his selfishness, were far worse.
  • Spoiled Brat: Has grown into this thanks to becoming spoiled back in her home dimension, but she's smarter than the usual example, seeing as she at least tries to act like Lincoln in order to get what she wants, and she's still nowhere near as worse as Lola. Whining-wise, anyway.
  • The Sociopath: She thinks nothing of how her actions hurt those around her and focuses entirely on her own desires. Is willing to kill others who try to get in the way of those desires, and thinks nothing of risking her own well being to get what she wants. Like making a deal with an ominous humanoid.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: She's a pre-teen around Lincoln's age, and yet she's a sociopath perfectly willing to manipulate, lie, or even hurt her counterpart's body in order to get what she wants.
  • The Unfettered: It doesn't matter how many rules she has to break, as long as it helps her get what she wants, she'll do it.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: This is a girl who, after her family spent the last few years of their lives spoiling her rotten and making sure she's the first thing in their minds, she ditches them for their counterparts, then plans to either turn back into a girl or ditch them again in order to achieve her true goal: A world where she's a girl with 10 sisters doing her whim. She does all of this without a hint of regret or remorse, by the way which bites her in the ass much later.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Linka's method of using the artifact of time. She essentially uses brute force to make the artifact work, which it does, but at the cost of fine control. For example Linka uses the artifact to age her male body for more power, but ends up destroying her clothes while doing it.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: She's perfectly willing to do anything to achieve her Utopian dream; A world where she's female, and has 10 sisters spoiling her rotten. William doesn't approve of this, but he has no other choice.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's not the fact she's replaced Lincoln in his dimension that's the big spoiler, that's discovered pretty early on, it's the fact that she abandoned her family willingly, is ruining Lincoln's life without a hint of remorse, and ESPECIALLY her true personality that's the big spoiler.
  • Would Hurt a Child: The child is herself, yes, but it's the thought that counts.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Her hair is the same white color as Lincoln, and her heart is pure, unadulterated darkness.

The guardian of fate, and apparently the boss of the anomaly hunting organization. He eventually takes the Louds and Lincoln to his domain after defeating William.

  • Benevolent Genie: He performs Lincoln's wish to give William a new home with a reborn sister to the letter after he explains himself, and also gives Lincoln an offer to take him home, without any tricks up his sleeves. He even helps Lincoln put d63'\ back together properly.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: He legitimately wants to maintain order in the known multiverse. His idea to do this? Help an organization based around Yu-Gi-Oh who card anomalies and whose members come from destroyed realities. And then he does nothing about it.
    • He does absolutely nothing to help Linka defeat William, despite his mission putting the order of the multiverse in jeopardy, but he does reward the Louds after defeating him.
  • Brick Joke: He appears at the end of the story and mentions that Lincoln had been through quite the story. How does he know? Because he's been telling the story!
  • Domain Holder: Has his own pocket dimension outside the multiverse, called the interdimension.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The form in which he appears has thousands of faces, and is bathed in orange light.
  • The Gods Must Be Lazy: He's not technically a god, but he still fits, since he prefers to stay at the sidelines while his minions, the anomaly hunters, deal with the anomalies themselves.
  • Groin Attack: Gives Lincoln one of these as per requested by "someone from A-113's internet."
  • Guardian Entity: He's called a guardian, and in this card, the ward he's protecting is the fate of the entire multiverse.
    • On a straighter example, he seems to have served as this to Lincoln to a certain extent.
  • I Have Many Names: May or may not actually be The Pagemaster.
  • In Mysterious Ways: Prefers to interfere as little as possible for the desired result, instead of trying to micro manage everything like Cryptos
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He comes off as kind of an ass for not solving everything that happened when he had the power to do so, but as he points out that he already has infinite people either thanking or blaming him for every right and wrong in the multiverse when he simply prefers to let people help themselves.
  • Light Is Good: His body is bathed in orange light, and he's a nice guy who just so happens to control all fate in the multiverse.
  • Medium Awareness: His introduction involves welcoming Lincoln and talking about the story he was just in.
    • Made even more apparent as he is the narrator of the entire story, according to one of the author's other works: The Broken House
  • The Story Teller: According to The Broken House he was telling this story while that one was still in progress.
  • Walking Spoiler: The fact he appears at all is a massive spoiler.
  • Wham Line: "Hello, Lincoln Loud of Dimension C-137, and welcome to the interdimension."
