Parents Sibling
Father Mother Sister
George Martin Maria Unknown Cindy Martin

Your not-so-typical-at-all high-school girl who finds herself in the middle of her own story.

  • All a Part of the Job: She might have taken the job for the money initially, but stays for the magic and adventure, despite the danger.
  • By the Eyes of the Blind: The reason Sara hired her for the job is because Lucinda was the only one who could see the advert in the shop window since she believes in stories.
  • Chekhov's Hobby: Lucinda's cosplay.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Fails at magic and is a rookie swordsperson at best but uses intuition to her and the situation's advantage.
  • Cloud Cuckoolanders Minder: Subverted in that Erlina is naturally adept to living in a story culture but Lucinda nonetheless thinks that what she believes is somehow strange.
  • Fish out of Water: Plunged both unwillingly into life in a new town and willingly into work in Gaia and Anima.
  • Guile Hero: of the "witty" kind. Is very good at talking the situation into a less animus state.
  • Interspecies Friendship: with Erlina. Human and Fairy.
  • Like a Duck Takes to Water: Lucinda adjusts to the Otherworlds a lot faster than she adjusts to her new town.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Justified in that Lucinda only need wear her red prince outfit. However, she does wear an additional 2 outfits when Sara's work calls for it: a huntsman garb and peasant's dress.
  • Muggle Power: Isn't anything special when fighting is concerned but Lucinda is a fantastic actor when the situation calls for it.
  • Odd Friendship: with Erlina.
  • Cosplay Otaku: Owns a number of costumes and dresses up on occasion for leisure.
  • The Protagonist: of Miss Prince. In the VDBIF universe she is one of four, sharing this role with Tyrian, Will and Joshua.
  • Red Is Heroic: Lucinda's prince outfit is predominantly red.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Downplayed, Lucinda's the burgundy with Erlina. She's more likely to be freaked out, sure, but she's hardly hot headed.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Nothing really surprises Lucinda. The only thing that really does is that her fantasy is others' realities.
  • Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: Well, wake up, get detention, save otherworlds and help fix broken stories.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Dresses as a prince for work, the costume coming out of her cosplay wardrobe.

Erlina Halfenna
"Well, I must say this page is rather uninteresting"

Age Species Job Birthplace Residence
15 Fairy Princess of the Light Realm, Witch's Assistant Light Realm, Fairyland, Gaia The Blue Forest, Anima
Mother Father
Maia Halfenna Unnamed Unknown

Runaway Princess of the Light Realm of Fairyland. Best friends with Lucinda.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is generally quite sweet-natured but when something happens that she doesn't like then everyone knows about it.
  • Brutal Honesty
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Like most fairies has perceptions different to those of an Earthling. Being a royal doesn't help much either.
  • The Cloud Cuckoolander Was Right: Due to being Genre Savvy, really. The way she thinks may be at odds with Lucinda but it's her who has grown up in the environments she is exposed to and when it comes down to it any detriment is more to do with inexperience from age than lack of common sense.
  • Distress Ball: Erlina's underexposure to magic as a result of living on Earth means Lucinda has to escort her through Bad Schwartz to get help from Johann. This ends with Erlina living with Rosie.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Erlina may have the occasional tantrum or show of impatience to Lucinda but she's a really nice girl who likes helping out.
  • Interspecies Friendship: with Lucinda. Fairy and Human.
  • Mystical Waif
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Erlina can be unabashedly blunt with people but on the rare occasion she has a tantrum something has happened which she really doesn't like.
  • Odd Friendship: with Lucinda.
  • Rebellious Princess: Runs away from home to avoid an Arranged Marriage with a man of dreams.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Downplayed, Erlina's the indigo with Lucinda. Her experience with the world she lives in gives her a cool common sense but occasionally she flies into little tantrums.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Despite being able at any time, really, to return home she chooses to work for Rosie, Rent-A-Legend and thus carry out dangerous tasks and roles.
  • Workaholic: Lives with Rosie and helps with her potionmaking. When she's not doing that, or socialising with Lucinda, carries out errands for Rent-A-Legend.

Tyrian von Stollenheim

Age Species Job Birthplace Residence
53 Fairy (Vampire) Prince Regent of the Dark Realm Dark Realm, Fairyland, Gaia
Parents Offspring
Mother Father Daughter Daughter
Nareena von Stollenheim Conall von Stollenheim Unnamed changeling Unnamed changeling

Acting King of the Dark Realm of Fairyland which he runs from the middle of a party.

  • All-Loving Hero: Warmly accepts all walks of life into his court and sees the good in people no matter what they have done or are doing.
  • Benevolent Boss: Has no wish for his inner court to call him by official names and allows an informal court.
  • Bishōnen: Although the sparkle appears on his shirt he practically radiates prettiness.
  • Bi the Way: Tyrian has had a number of relationships with males, such as Lawrence and, now, Will, and females.
  • Chaotic Good
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Is firmly on the side of good.
  • Friendly Neighbourhood Vampire: He doesn't really consider himself a vampire but for a fairy he's one of the nicer ones.
  • Good Parents: His dad, Conall, is a modest royal too and brought little Tyrian up very well indeed. Tyrian has a "hero-worship" thing about him as a result.
  • Guile Hero: of the "charmy" kind.
  • The Hedonist: Is more eccentric than ever being egocentric.
  • Interspecies Friendship: with Aurelia. Fairy and Youkai.
  • Interspecies Romance: with Will. Fairy and Human.
  • It Amused Me
  • Keet: Very outgoing, cheerful, and grinny.
  • Meaningful Name: Tyrian is a name the author thought she made up, but when it turned out to mean 'royal purple' she had Tyrian's father name him that because he is the product of a royal (blue blood) and a commoner (red blood). However, it's Will who is more disposed to wearing that colour as part of his court-dress.
  • Missing Parents: His parents are missing and presumed either dead or in a story.
  • Modest Royalty: Holds his courtiers in very high regard and even goes out of his way to protect those close to him. In addition he refuses to have a coronation until his parents are confirmed dead.
  • Official Couple: with Will.
  • Protagonist: In the VDBIF universe he is one of four, sharing this role with Will, Lucinda and Joshua.
  • Purple Is Powerful: and gorgeous, thank you very much!
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red with Will.
  • Romantic Vampire Boy
  • Royal Blood: Is the only one of the four Stollenheim leads that can lay claim to any legitimate royalty (sorry Alucard). This is due to his eldest ancestor being "Night", one of Gaia's three children, from which Dark Realm royalty stems.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Even though he is an only child and a prince, Tyrian has no problem being nice to people.

The captain of Ocean's Fangs and a privateer

  • Agent Peacock: A manly example. Out of the four "main" Stolleneheims, who all dress nicely in their own way, Hugo dresses the best. In addition he accessories with a vampire bat earring and silk scarf. There's definitely a 3rd Doctor thing going on with him.
  • Berserk Button: People abandoning their families (fathers in particular) and pirates who sink ships instead of taking them. Of course, at sea, one can't afford to be berserk.
  • The Captain
  • Disappeared Dad: His dad left Hugo's mum pregnant.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Trash talking is his non-offensive weapon.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Family is VERY important to him.

  • Pragmatic Hero

    The Stollenheim family 

  • Badass Family
  • Blue Blood: Contessa, Johann and Victor are only "Counts" which are nobles of varying statuses. However, Count Cordelia marrying King Arawn and into Fairyland royalty means that Tyrian's branch of the family tree is Royal Blood.
  • Dark Is Not Evil
  • "Darkness von Gothick" Name
  • Five Temperament Ensemble
    • Leukine: Contessa
    • Sanguine: Tyrian
    • Choleric: Hugo
    • Melancholic: Victor
    • Phlegmatic: Johann
  • Meaningful Name: Stollenheim can be broken down into the Germanic "Stollen-", which is derived from "stolle", and "-heim". "Stolle" translates as "support" or "post" and "heim" means "home". So Stollenheim is a family that is well-connected, inwardly supportive and, "stollen" being a cake, sweet at heart.

Lydia von Stollenheim

Victor's mum. Overprotective.
