    The Duke of Vaults
Voiced by: Aurelio Voltaire

  • Affably Evil: He's just so much fun to watch.
  • All Men Are Perverts: But mostly him.
  • Anything That Moves: While in the underworld he was involved with the centaur that drew his chariot, as well as the two Gorgons.
    • “The Fifth One” gives us an example of just how non-existent his standards are.
  • Bad Boss: The zombie skeletons seem to think so.
  • Color Motif: His lines are primarily red, as is his outfit while in the Underworld.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Word of Gay claims that the Duke is attracted to both sexes, but in different ways. invoked
    Daria: Women are for fucking, men are for sucking.
  • Fatal Flaw: Pride and Lust. So far his main problem is that he consistently underestimates Missi.
  • Flash Step: The first time Missi makes a run for it you can see Duke blurring past her before he reappears in front of her.
  • Forgets to Eat: Turns out the reason he’s so skinny is because he spends too much time having fun and not enough time hunting. His picky eating habits probably don’t help.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: The Duke has given numerous Aside Glances throughout the videos, as well as addressing the audience directly in Land of the Dead, along with some of the animation tests Daria has done.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Duke's appearance was based off of Voltaire in his early appearance on the album Almost Human, hence the uncanny resemblance.
  • Lack of Empathy: Shown when he unconcernedly used the heads of some of his skeleton butlers as a staircase.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Daria has talked about the difference between Voltaire and Duke, explaining that they aren't supposed to be the same person and while Voltaire is a pretty nice guy, "Duke is evil". Daria and her friend Mina have also talked about how they like to imagine that The Vampair Series is a TV show and the actor playing Duke is really sweet behind the scenes while Missi's actress is a total diva.
  • Never My Fault: He spends Episode 3.5 whinging how he can't forgive Missi for hurting him. He seems to be forgetting a few pertinent details on why she did so.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a very classy top hat.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His favorite colors are red and black.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has red eyes and he's a villain. They’ve been shown glowing when he was particularly pissed off.
  • Smoking Hot Sex: Did this after his encounter with Genevieve and in some of the artwork Daria has posted.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": Duke's full name is The Duke of Vaults and many fans refer to him as The Duke. According to Word of God, the 'of Vaults' part was a title he came up with for himself and his original name was Duke.
  • Voluntary Shape Shifting: He can shapeshift into a bat, but prefers not to because it requires hair removal afterward.

    Missi Spiderwebs or Melissa Dumarias
Voiced by: Lily Allen (Part 3), Zoe Tantrum (Part 4)

  • Action Survivor: In the first video Missi never stops resisting Duke, manages to free herself when he strings her up like a marionette, and finally defeats him by outsmarting him.
  • The Alcoholic: Has been frequently shown drinking from wine glasses filled with red liquid since her possession. Some of these might be filled with blood, but she’s also been shown with wine bottles in some of the official artwork. She may have turned to this as a way to cope with her Sanity Slippage.
  • Anti-Villain: The evil magic from the cane turned her into a real bitch — but since her target is Duke, not many are complaining.
  • Bisexual Vampire: Missi was originally straight, only to become bisexual after becoming a vampire. Apparently this is a general vampire thing in the world Daria created.
  • Book Dumb: Played with. Judging from the papers we briefly see in Episode 4, she gets A's in Literature but does poorly at all other subjects.
  • Brainy Brunette: She's studious and clever and her hair is brown.
  • Color Motif: Even before her magical makeover, her lines are purple. After it, she gains a purple dress and hair.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Before all the magic starts messing with her appearance her hair and eyes were both brown.
  • Cute Bookworm: As a human, she was rather adorable and was heavily into books. She even stated on her college application that she wanted to major in literature.
  • Dark Magical Girl: What the cane turns her into. She might still be one after losing the cane if she remembers everything she studied in Duke's library.
  • Ignored Epiphany: In Episode 4 she's briefly freaked out enough by her tenuous grip on sanity that she throws away the cane, gets her stuff, and starts to leave. The sight of the Duke outside makes her angry enough to grab the cane and go right back to her vampire self.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Defeats Duke while wearing a big elaborate dress as Melissa, then straight forward kicks his ass as Missi.
  • Sanity Slippage: As of Episode 4, she may be going a little nuts to say the least.
  • Shaking the Rump: During "Resurrection" her dancing involves a lot of the type 2 version of this. Showing she feels arrogant enough about how she can deal with Duke while dancing.
