Unnamed Dugtrio who is the doorman for the Bedsheets speakeasy.
- The Nicknamer: Nicknames everyone as they leave.
Operates Rotom's Rotor Washer, a somewhat flintstoned version of the real world Gravitron — a centrifugal ride.
- Testosterone Poisoning: Uses the phrase "are you man enough..." while essentially daring folks to get on his ride, much to the chagrin of Jani.
Judy (Drowzee) and Amelie (Slowbro)
Operate a berry cake stall at the carnival.
- Irony: Judy's a narcoleptic Drowsee (a species of Pokemon that can easily put others to sleep), and Amelie's a hyperactive, quick-speaking Slowbro.
- Those Two Guys: They're there to offer comedic banter and give the party food.
June is a happy-go-lucky and somewhat mischievous Zoroark who runs a fun house with her grandfather Darnell and (sometimes) her sister July. They take it to carnivals around the islands. She becomes good friends with Goobert and begins tagging along on some of his adventures with (and without) the party.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: With Goobert during the Orbs arc.
- Fun Personified: June's more-or-less made it her mission in life to make people smile and and have fun and rarely exhibits any negative emotions. The only times she has remotely slowed down at all was when she got yelled at by Autumn after playfully teasing Finley/Autumn for looking down in the dumps in Foxfell without knowing why Finley was upset at the time.
- Genki Girl: A very energetic Zoroark who loves brightening people's days.
- Guest-Star Party Member: Circumstances force her to join the party during the Orbs arc. (As she is in Goobert's body after a "Freaky Friday" Flip via a Swap Orb and has to switch back into her own body.)
- Innocently Insensitive: Sometimes seems unaware of the feelings of her sister July in her un-ending mission to make everyone she meets happy. She also accidentally insults Delilah when she sees her as a Dragonite for the first time and inadvertently makes light of Autumn's concern for her parents later.
- Loon with a Heart of Gold: June seems like a displaced Looney Tunes character at times, but always means well and loves her friends.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Any time her normally energetic and cheerful demeanor drops.
- Raised by Grandparents: She and her sisters were raised by Darnell.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: While July is down-to-earth and likely depressed, June is incredibly loud, energetic, and full of motion.
June and July's grandfather who helps June run her fun house. A kindly older fellow who is very protective of his three granddaughters and does wood-carving at his (and the sisters') home in Foxfell in his spare time.
- Cool Old Guy: A very friendly and out-going individual. He even allows Eliot to duck inside the tent to turn back into his normal self (after having transformed into Marsha the Swampert) free of charge.
- Papa Wolf: When June goes missing, he immediately declares to Rich and Marty that he is going to go with them to find her.
July is June's twin sister who helps out at June's fun house sometime. Calm and a bit cynical, she is June's polar opposite and seems to harbor some level of inadequacy toward June.
- Little Sister Instinct: Well, little is debatable, considering they're twins, but when revealed that June was taken away via Escape Orb, she doesn't hesitate joining her grandfather and Rich to save her.
- The Eeyore: Quieter and seems to be a bit of a Grumpy Bear compared to her sister.
- Raised by Grandparents: Both she and her sisters were raised by their grandfather.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: While June is energetic and cheerful, July is calmer, more reasonable, and probably some type of depressed.
August is June's other twin sister along with July. Though she has yet to properly appear in the RP, player artwork depicts her as being shorter and pudgier than her two sisters. She is off doing her own thing and doesn't help with June's fun house.
- The Ghost: Currently has only been mentioned in passing by June and has yet to physically appear.
Tropes for the whole:
- Adaptation Deviation: Dugtrio only have one egg at a time in the games — but for Agarthan Dugtrio mating together, they have three simultaneously. They are also born not all that far apart — typically well less than 24 hours for all three eggs to hatch.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Apparently Agarthan Digletts must join within a relatively small age window, lest they risk either perpetual immaturity or rapid mental deterioration — not unlike dementia.
- Ditto Aliens:
- Jani quips that Digletts all look the same anyway, and Digda says little to counter that.
- Later defied when Digda manages to identify key similarities between Jani and Milly — while he appeared to spend a lot of time doing so, one can infer that he originally got these tells from the real Milly with a mere cursory glance.
- This becomes Jani's go-to excuse for anyone who calls her Milly, though she knows better than to attempt it on Milly's family.
- Backfires when Hudson tries to use it on Triss and the girls — they're all vocally offended.
- Dream Walker: Not only do Agarthan Dugtrio share dreams, but Digletts of the same litter can also share dreams when in close proximity.
- Family Theme Naming:
- Doug and Triss are the parents' names, both taking half of their species — Dugtrio.
- The three daughters are named Milly, Tilly, and Lilly.
- While also qualifying as Meaningful Name and Named After Somebody Famous, all middle names of female Terranports have been names of Dax hosts from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The "meaningful" aspect is that not unlike this interpretation of Dugtrio, the DS9 Trill species is also symbiotic.
- Happily Married: Despite Triss' pushy nature, Doug and Triss are a happy couple.
- Hero Antagonist: The mother, sisters, and father all serve as minor antagonists early on, but they're also somewhat justified. The situation regarding Jani's arrival in the world is the only reason they even qualify as such — and they're certainly not villains.
- Marry for Love: Doug and Triss clearly married for love over money.
- Meaningful Rename: Upon merging into a Dugtrio, it's traditional for the new whole to adopt a new name.
- Mental Fusion: Obviously, Agarthan Dugtrio share thoughts through physical connections. Digletts can also do so by starting an evolution and then pulling out of it — the connections are tangible, albeit barely physical, but thoughts are shared and even kept afterwards.
- Multiple Head Case: While a trope of Dugtrio specifically, it's worth noting that Agarthan Dugtrio have some mix of individuality and shared thought. One head typically does most of the talking, though they have three brains working in a way that's hard for outsiders to comprehend.
- Only Child Syndrome: Early concepts of the family gave the sisters an older brother Dugtrio, but ultimately Law of Conservation of Detail was employed (the player already had five characters to play not unlike The Nutty Professor) plus Digda's age being established as 35 would give his lifelong friend Doug an improbable age if he were to have an adult son. Younger triplets were also briefly considered but that would've been worse, giving sarysa eight roles to play simultaneously.
- Preppy Name: The family's last name is Terranport, a ground-tweaked version of the wealthy Davenport name. Lilly's full name is Lilith Ezri Terranport, Milly's is Millicent Emony Terranport, Tilly's is Matilda Lela Terranport, and Triss' is Beatrice Audrid Terranport.
- Same-Sex Triplets: The "components" of Agarthan Dugtrio tend to be born from the same litter within hours of each other, and are always (with rare exception) the same sex. The Diglett sisters are no exception. They appear similar, but by no means indistinguishably identical.
- Twintuition: Very downplayed — when Jani used a transfer orb, both Lilly and Tilly had a panic attack. Lilly didn't even know what it meant, but Tilly assumed it meant that Jani had died.
A Dugtrio who meets Jani in the dojo at Hoard. He mistook her for a Diglett he happened to know, later identified as Milly, but then decided to help her train for her next match. Is a C-ranked professional battler in the global circuit. Is a private investigator (contract) currently employed by the Swords of Justice, investigating the spread of the Viral Aggression in the professional circuit.
- Ascended Extra: Twice ascended in fact...maybe even thrice. Was originally meant as a mere teaser for the Orbs arc's location (as well as to avoid accusations of Ass Pull), then used to give Jani someone to bounce off while recovering in triage. Then when Irma knocked out sarysa's power for a week, he allowed Jani to participate when unable to coordinate with other players.
- Exposition Beam: Fires one off-screen at Jani so she's competent in her third arena battle.
- Freudian Trio: For what little they spoke, one of the side heads was an emotional id while the other side head was a logical superego, making Prime!Digda the balanced ego.
- Guest-Star Party Member: Joins in on the final battle and then accompanies the party to Bedsheets before departing at the Carnival, though a temporary Author Existence Failure made the latter somewhat abridged.
- Hero of Another Story: He's on a journey to rid the world of the Surge, aka the Viral Aggression, after it ravaged the professional circuit and nearly got him killed. This only lightly intersects the party's journey.
- Insistent Terminology: Heavily downplayed, possibly passive aggressive or a result of forgetfulness — Digda regularly drops the battling circuit name for the Viral Aggression, which is the Surge. He tends to use both around the humanmons, though.
- Meaningful Name: Digda (ディグダ) is the Japanese name for Diglett.
- Mentor Archetype: Really becomes this for Jani in many ways — having an interest in her due to Mistaken Identity, he not only teaches Jani how to fight, but also teaches her about their kind — philosophies, customs, etc.
- Mistaken Identity: Mistakes Jani for someone in his past, although possibly a subversion since all evidence points to Jani inhabiting the body of a Diglett named Milly.
- Real Life Writes the Plot: Aside from his expanded role being the result of sarysa's real world power outage, he also helps Jani get up to speed on the rules of the world — based on feedback from players finding Jani's ignorance to be grating at times.
Milly is the original owner of the body Jani ended up in when she was forced into the WHABP world. Presumably, her soul is in Jani's human body in the human world, and is most likely never to actually be shown — merely talked and in-character speculated about.
- Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Had a brooch with an emblem of Agartha when Jani entered the world, the latter likely lost it while struggling to surface herself. Probably relatively new at the time, given her newly minted status as a diplomat.
- Actual Pacifist: Heavily implied by Digda to be this, seeing how she'd never hurt a Cutiefly. Further implied by Triss' attitudes about raising the girls.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: Without all the fun and learning — it's strongly implied that Jani and Milly switched both bodies and worlds.
- Informed Attribute: Numerous, given that she is mostly talked about, and hasn't even been flashed back yet. Was training to be a diplomat before Jani came along, as she was scheduled to deliver a gift (and an invitation) to Frau Morbitesse in the interest of intercity dialogue.
Father of Milly, owner of the house the party ends up in when Jani is struck with an Escape Orb. Works with the town's reservoir management authority.
- Mellow Fellow: In spite of his justified initial outbursts (his daughter was gone for 11 days, after all) he's pretty mellow about everything, particularly Benji's cooking foibles.
- Mr. Exposition: It's masked better than it often is, but Doug manages to inform the party of Agartha and the orbs situation during their initial encounter.
- Nice Guy: While he's first encountered by the party as livid and somewhat enraged, this is mainly due to the fact the party randomly appeared inside his house and his "daughter" just showed up mysteriously after being missing for 11 days. Once that's resolved, he treats the party like honored guests, and never so much as raises a claw to them afterward.
- Open-Minded Parent: Downplayed, but qualifies. Definitely looser than Triss — if anything, his pushing at Jani is more about not wanting to get in trouble with the missus.
- Overprotective Dad: Downplayed — hassles the party a bit over Jani's abscence and their suddenly showing up with her, to the point of repeatedly demanding answers from them. On the other hand, it's not like he tried to confine her or anything.
- Real Men Cook: He's not a house husband or anything, having a full time job of his own, but he is the family's cook — and he's good at it too.
- Southern Gentleman: Kind of...he's well-to-do financially speaking, speaks in a thick southern accent (far thicker than the rest of his family) but slips a bit into the uncouth at times. Not to mention, he has a somewhat blue-collar job.
- Unfazed Everyman: This becomes truly apparent when Benji starts playing around as Marjorie, but otherwise he's not all that bothered by the weirdness around him, which includes knowledge that most of the party, including Jani in Milly's body, are former humans.
- Whipped: He's absolutely whipped by Triss, though it's more due of her own perfectionist tendencies. Triss does not engage in malicious one-way nagging.
- Working Class People Are Morons: Averted — while he uses plain speak and keeps most of his dialogue relatively simple, he was able to deduce that orbs had affected the party and knew some other information not related to his own work.
Mother of Milly, and also the mayor of Agartha. Hails from the wealthy Terranport family, whose family-run corporation specializes in banking and financial services but originated as a mining operation hundreds of years ago. The kids took their mother's name simply due to the status it carries. Triss herself has a high end fashion business, which also produces the very wig she wears. (the Mayor gig doesn't pay a living wage)
- Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: She wears an Alolan Dugtrio wig for the sake of presence, but she's still a Kanto Dugtrio.
- Action Politician: While she's hardly any kind of fighter, she does get her feet wet by single-handedly digging a wide opening for the party to access the ancient tunnels.
- Actual Pacifist: In spite of her use of showy pseudo-aggression, she hasn't ever been known to actually strike anyone. She passes this way of thinking down to her daughters.
- Aggressive Negotiations: Pretty much her bread and butter — using mild earthquakes for intimidation, frequently raising her voice, and otherwise presenting herself as outright assertive.
- Character Filibuster: As the assertive leader of Agartha, Triss can't help but giving frequent long, well thought out speeches and monologues — often going paragraphs at a time without interruption.
- Consummate Professional: She takes great pride in her work, to the point that it's somewhat all-consuming, and expects the best out of other professionals she associates with.
- Control Freak: Around others, including her own husband, absolutely. Around her daughters, it's a mixed bag. She controls their lives to a degree, insists they evolve before turning 18, but she also lets them speak — Tilly in particular is fairly close to her equal. This is because she has been grooming the triplets for a career in politics.
- HeelFace Turn: Does this as soon as she feels the party can be trusted — although her status as a heel to begin with is debatable, being more like a shark in a shark tank.
- Large Ham: If her use of mild, unsettling earthquakes to make an entrance when annoyed aren't enough of a hint, her manner of speaking pretty much locks her into this trope. She's also prone to long filibusters, and can't help but remind folks that she is the mayor every three posts or so.
- Manipulative Bastard: Demonstrates this during the "tense dinner" scene, where she plays all sorts of mind games to uncover the truth about Jani/Milly, not to mention the humanmons as a whole.
- Moral Sociopathy: Make no mistake about it — she's a high-functioning sociopath. Whatever face she's wearing at the moment and whatever platitude she's spewing at the moment are both probably rehearsed. That said, she's still looking out for both her family and her city.
- Ms. Exposition: Aside from providing stealth infodumps on Agartha and Agarthan Dugtrio while toying with the party, she also drops some new information related to Mila's kidnapping.
- Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: As a politician, she has trained herself to suppress her natural Agarthan southern accent — limiting it to terms like y'all and tarnation for the sake of town pride. Around her family, she suppresses it entirely — she's trying to get her kids to rid themselves of it altogether. She still occasionally slips back into it, though — becoming almost as thick as her husband, Doug.
- Pandering to the Base: During her discussion with one of the Explouds, she makes it clear that she puts a lot of stock into her approval ratings.
- Parental Favoritism: Makes it pretty clear that Tilly, the rational one, is her favorite. Given that Milly was the one sponsored into Orichalcum, however, this may not have always been the case.
- Tiger Mom: Definitely has a bit of this going on, aggressively concerned about her daughters' upbringing and standing in the world. She does demonstrate some degree of love and tolerance at the epilogue of the Agartha arc, approving of Jani's business venture since it would ultimate benefit the trio — and best case Milly as well.
- Uptown Girl: Comes from a wealthy lineage, unlike her working class husband Doug.
- Villain Over for Dinner: Subverted — while three pages of the roleplay are dedicated to a tense dinner where the humanmons try to enlist the mayor's help, in the end, Triss is revealed to not be a villain so much as an antagonistic, but justified presence who's mainly worried about her daughter.
Tilly and Lilly (Digletts)
Milly's sisters. The three were intended to join (evolve into a Dugtrio together) since birth, but Milly's "disappearance" completely upended their lives. They are purportedly the only Digletts compatible with Jani for the sake of evolution — which also explains why despite all her battling, it never happened via typical video game methods.
- Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal:
- Lilly wears a white bow — but she's not seen with it at first. When she met with the party, she'd left it at the tailor's.
- Tilly gets a Professor Juniper style wig in Orichalcum, which is a VERY subdued (and perfectly normal looking) beehive variant.
- Actual Pacifist: Not unlike Milly, the other two sisters are also pacifists. This is in line with Triss' insistence that they solve problems with words, not violence.
- Bizarre Taste in Food: While she tends to prefer Leppa in her food, she seems to be perfectly fine with Tamato pancakes, which is a hot spicy variant of tomato.
- Butt-Monkey: Poor Lilly gets smack from both Tilly and Jani...that is, both have literally smacked her. Being stuck in a room with Tilly and Triss is absolute torture for her, as both are more or less her mental superiors.
- Comically Missing the Point: Lilly does this fairly often. For example, when the trio first shared their thoughts, she mistook all the lolcats in Jani's memory for the notion that she could be a cat.
- Daddy's Girl: Lilly certainly qualifies, getting along well with Doug and sharing personality traits with him.
- Deconstruction: Tilly and Jani have had numerous discussions deconstructing various aspects of their experiences, with a blatant one trying to compare the humanmons' knowledge to that of world natives and how it came to be.
- Deer in the Headlights: Lilly ended up being this the moment she found herself in serious danger, facing down against two of the kidnappers who ambushed her all of a sudden.
- Demoted to Extra: Both of the sisters (but especially Lilly) from the latter part of Slak Rock onward, to some extent. Tilly does still fairly often get a word in during plot-important sequences, but is often following party silently a lot of the time. Lilly, meanwhile, is usually stated to be "in a state of catatonia" and silent, sometimes bordering on a Living Prop.
- Dream Weaver: Lilly is able to manipulate the trio's shared dreams easily. Not even brainiac Tilly and imaginative Jani can pull off this feat. Unfortunately, she also does this subconsciously — and ends up creating a nightmare the next night related to her experience as a prisoner.
- Emotionless Girl: Tilly has very subdued reactions for the most part. Her smile is also somewhat forced, and overall she's just hardly excitable — though not nearly as much as Voxno-V. She will occasionally exclaim, and in extreme situations her emotions will slip through.
- Exploring the Evil Lair: Andy convinces Lilly to do this during the kidnapping arc, and they're pretty successful — until Lilly just completely freezes when push comes to shove, and ends up captured.
- Expy: Lilly is a refined, more three dimensional version of Voxno-!. Tilly is a refind, more three dimensional version of Voxno-V. The duo also share passing similarities with Mauveine and Speedy from the Manaphy arc, as well as the Hitmonduo.
- Genki Girl: Lilly is pretty excitable, not by Voxno-! standards, but she's kept in check by her sister Tilly.
- Girly Girl: Not only is Lilly this, but she's also named appropriately — of the three sisters, the author decided "Lilly" is the girliest name.
- Gosh Darn It to Heck!: Lilly doesn't swear, and will use minced oaths like "heck" instead. Tilly neither swears nor uses minced oaths, though O.O.C. Is Serious Business could easily apply to both of them.
- Hyperspeed Ambush: Lilly attempted this on Jani while the humanmons were at the library, in an effort to get the trio to evolve. It backfired HARD.
- Leeroy Jenkins: Lilly pulls this when she and Jani are spying on a Marowak connected to a slavery/trafficking ring, slipping into his house when it's more or less unnecessary — and dangerous.
- Like Mother, Like Daughter: Tilly is very much like her mother — she sees the logic to Triss' Tiger Mom upbringing and acts somewhat like an "enforcer" of the trio, ensuring they don't stray too far from the long-term good.
- The McCoy: Lilly is the impulsive, emotional one of the triplets — even when it was just Milly instead of Jani.
- Ms. Exposition: Tilly goes into great detail about the Terranports, the taboo, and various subjects concerning Agartha and the island.
- Non-Player Companion: The next step up from Guest-Star Party Member, they are companions to the party who are essentially linked to Jani. They start off as basically non-combatants — whether or not this changes (before it becomes moot) remains to be seen.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Tilly gets noticeably emotional when her family's well being is in jeopardy — though it's still subdued relative to even Jani let alone Lilly.
- Tilly screaming in pure instinctive terror when Jani uses the transfer orb should be a strong indicator of how serious the situation is from her POV.
- Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Lilly slips into her native accent when stressed or excited. When she does it in front of her mother, though, she'll chide her. Tilly occasionally plays surrogate when in front of their parents -or- if the accent gets full blown.
- Put on a Bus: Twice in succession one might say...they've been put on a bus to the Blissparce sidequest, but are ultimately slated to take an extended leave from the roleplay as their player doesn't really know what else to do with them as Jani is expected to stay as a Purrloin for a very long time. (though concerns about Digletts being too alien or unrelatable for the reader also factored in)
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Take Milly/Jani out of the picture and you essentially have two vastly different siblings who still tolerate each other.
- Shipper on Deck: Lilly isn't shy about shipping both Marlon x Marsha, as well as Niles x Dana while they're at the bar.
- Skilled, but Naïve:
- Lilly is by no means an experienced fighter, and she struggles to take it seriously. She ends up excelling in the more action oriented tasks, such as evading Marlon's weakened training-level Psychic attacks.
- Tilly is a downplayed version — rational and book smart, but lacking practical experience. She ends up excelling in more technical areas, such as teaching herself moves and quickly learning Protect.
- The Spock: Tilly is the calculating, rational one of the triplets — even when it was just Milly instead of Jani.
- The Stoic: Tilly definitely qualifies, handling her first true dangerous situation with a steady calm.
- Tritagonist: Given their inevitable and obvious fate, starting with the Agartha arc, they serve as deuteragonist and tritagonist to Jani.
- The Unfavorite: Lilly has the unfortunate distinction of being this, at least with her mother. Her relationship with her father is unclear, but given his personality it may be the other way around.
- Wise Beyond Her Years: The days-before-eighteen year old Tilly is able to speak on Triss' level, and even advises her with budgetary issues from time to time.
Dr. Durango (Durant)
Middle-aged doctor of one of the few small clinics in town.
- Alliterative Name: Not only is his name alliterative, but it also matches his species, profession, and professional title.
- Species Surname: His legal surname is indeed Durant.
- Verbal Tic: "Ah, yes, yes" and "Now, now," and simply "Ah," seem to be go-to fillers for him while he collects his thoughts.
A bookish Krokorok resident of Agartha who meets Benji during the kidnapping arc and winds up witnessing his kidnapping. She winds up caught up in the kidnapping mess and joins the crew in looking for Benji, Finley, and Mila. Afterwards, she continues sticking around Benji (joining Goobert's "Goo Crew") and the two later fall for each other.
- Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Wears glasses.
- Action Survivor: Becomes this during the L'Arachel arc, being a mostly inexperienced and average Pokémon (barring the Agartha incident) inadvertently getting herself embroiled in the consistently dangerous situation alongside the (comparatively more experienced) main group.
- Adult Fear: Begins to become concerned over what her, Benji, and especially Lucy getting caught up in the humanmons' situations will do to them psychologically when she's by herself with them (and Marsha) during the L'Arachel arc. She mentions in internal dialogue about having nightmares about this.
- Ambiguously Bi: Dinah doesn't seem to mind her male shapeshifting love interest Benji taking on female forms like his Noivern form Marjorie, but her player has declined to say whether or not there's any special reason for that.
- Bad Dreams: The party finds out when Dinah stays at the mayor's house the night after the kidnapping incident that Dinah is prone to these, thanks to childhood trauma and her crippling fear of her or someone else being eaten by another Pokémon.
- Bookworm: Dinah loves reading and spends much of her free time doing so.
- Dark and Troubled Past: It is hinted occasionally that Dinah suffers from one of these, and it is heavily implied to be the source of her chronic nightmares. The full details of her past are yet to be fully disclosed in-universe, but what is currently known at this time is that part of it involved Dinah having been orphaned at an early age and left to fend for herself almost entirely until she was lead to Agartha by Bea when Dinah was on the brink of starvation, whereupon Dinah was raised by Agarthan librarians.
- Guest-Star Party Member: She joins the party in their search for the kidnapped party members, partially because she feels it's necessary for her to be there as she was a witness to one of the kidnappings, and partially because she wants to meet Benji again (being fascinated by the fact that she's a Ditto). After this is all said and done, she becomes a Sixth Ranger in Goobert's circle of friends.
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Also wears a purple blouse.
- Mama Bear: There are slight hints that she is getting more and more protective of Lucy over time, which was probably kick-started by a nightmare had by her in Gleamscape where she watched helplessly as Lucy was attacked by a Victreebel. It comes to a head when Dinah can't bring herself to tell Lucy that Lucy shouldn't consider Dinah her adoptive mother when prompted to.
- Meganekko: A quiet bespectacled Krokorok who enjoys reading.
- Team Mom: All in all is the most calm and level-headed member of the group (barring her occasional fearfulness brought on by her Dark and Troubled Past) not counting Goobert himself and Marlon. She also seems fairly comfortable around kids such as Lucy (Riolu).
- Recurring Dreams: Dinah's most common nightmare is one involving her running afoul of a monster Victreebel that intends to eat her or someone else.
- Sixth Ranger: Dinah is not a resident of Silversand (thus was not part of Goobert's circle of friends there) and first meet the party much farther into the story when they visit Agartha, ultimately joining the Goo Crew afterwards after befriending (and eventually falling in love with) Benji.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Victreebel seems to really take the cake for Dinah, to the point of her having nightmares about them and being unable to finish reading a book when a page spread had a drawing of one on it.
A spunky, talkative young Riolu resident of Orichalcum whose Alakazam father Silas Dover was part of Andy's gang before Dore engineered the deaths of the entire gang (as well as Lucy's mother who was there trying to get Silas to return home). She is taken in by the party and stays with them throughout the Gleamscape arc.
- Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Lucy typically wears two bracelets belonging to her biological mother and a necklace with a Max Revive-shaped charm given to her by Lilly.
- Bookworm: Lucy quite enjoys reading and gladly spent her days while her parents were away (before their passing) at Orichalcum's library. It also gives her something that she identifies with Dinah once she meets her and Benji.
- Cheerful Child: Lucy is a relatively happy-go-lucky young Riolu when not thinking about what happened to her parents.
- Companion Cube: Totes around a plush Arbok (whom she calls Ricky), the one thing her biological father gave to her.
- Like Brother and Sister: While befriending much of the party in the days following her parents' deaths, she gets particularly close to Eliot, resulting in this sort of relationship between them.
- Motor Mouth: Rather chatty. Justified as she's a little kid.
- Name's the Same: One of three characters in the RP who is named some variation of Lucy.
- Orphan's Ordeal: Lucy flops back and forth between various stages of grief (particularly sadness and anger) after she learns of her parents' deaths.
- Plucky Girl: While considerably sullen after she learns of what happened to her parents, this side of Lucy (visible briefly before Andy/Dore breaks the news to her) begins to gradually reappear in the time afterward. Even while grieving, she attempts to fight Andy/Dore several times in the hours after they first cross paths.
- Power Copying: Learns Copycat between Gleamscape and Foxfell. So far, she has copied Delilah's Wing Attack and Eliot's Flame Burst and Transform with it.
- Puppy Love: Lucy and Belle's daughter Speedy seem to respectively get crushes on each other when they first meet.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Lucy has copied Transform with Copycat on a handful of occasions, morphing into Eliot's Sandslash form for several minutes during the Foxfell arc and briefly copying Benji's Swampert form during a scheme to help two inept stage magicians and disguising herself as other Pokémon to keep safe from a kidnapper targeting Riolus during the L'Arachel arc.
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: It's heavily implied that, even to the end, Lucy's father Silas was rarely ever around and spent most of his time with the rest of Andy's gang, to the point that her mother often had to drag him back home.
An elderly Shiny Mienshao that lives in a capsized ship in the middle of a rainforest, Kojo is a veteran martial artist - described as 'legendary' - and was once Bash's master. Having learned of him through Bash, Lars seeks him out for training, but is turned down after Kojo deduces he's on a quest for revenge.
- A Lizard Named "Liz": His name is derived from 'Kojondo', Mienshao's Japanese name.
- Flash Step: Is fond of doing this - he's introduced snatching a mug of tea out of Lars' hands and sitting down behind him without Lars even realising what happened.
- The Gadfly: He admits that he falsely tells visitors he was expecting them just to see how they'll react, and refuses to tell Lars why he won't train him because it'd 'spoil the surprise'.
- The Hermit: Lives out in the middle of a swampy rainforest by himself.
- Old Master: He's been fighting for at least seventy years, if not more, and was responsible for forging Bash into the combatant he is today. His reputation is such that not even Lars is willing to antagonise him, figuring Kojo would decapitate him if he did.
- Red Baron: Kojo "the Devil".
- Screw Politeness, I'm a Senior!: In addition to his Gadfly tendencies, he also enjoyed simply insulting Lars, calling him a 'Half-Wit' and making sarcastic jabs at his expense.
- Serious Business: Don't bring the weather from outside into his house. It spoils the aroma.
A husband and wife duo who have the party stay at their mansion whilst they are in Gleamscape. Hudson appears much later on, being revealed as Richard's right hand man in his guild-related operations.
- Mind Screw:After accidentally ingesting some psychedelic mushrooms, Richard sees images of his five sisters, all in bizzare ways.
- One Steve Limit: Bafflingly enough, all three characters share a name with others, with Lucille and Hudson sharing a name with two other characters.
- Violent Glaswegian: Hudson is basically meant to be this, outside the violence other characters in this trope have.
Phyllis (Swampert) and Angelo (Mantine) Guilford
Marsha and Benji's parents, who are first encountered in Gleamscape while they are on a vacation to the music festival going on there.
- All There in the Manual: Phyllis is a chiropractor in Silversand who passed down some of her skills to Marsha, who chose to become a lifeguard instead.
- Brooklyn Rage: Phyllis, whose accent is far thicker than Marsha's.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Phyllis is a large, not particularly feminine female Swampert while Angelo is a mildly effeminate and sensitive male Mantine.
Renata Langley (Garchomp)
Delilah's mother, who lives in Gleamscape and is confined to a wheelchair-like apparatus after Delilah unwittingly crippled her when Delilah first attempted to Mega Evolve (with disastrous results).
- Action Mom: Was a former tournament superstar until Delilah's accident.
- Cool Old Lady: While not exactly elderly (she is considerably older than most of the cast, though), she used to be quite the excellent battler in tournaments before she lost the use of her legs. Nowadays she leads a quiet life in Gleamscape and is quite friendly to folks who are strangers to her such as Lars.
- Retired Badass: Renata was forced into retirement from professional battling after Delilah's accident rendered her unable to walk. She's since become happy in retirement, having taken up cooking since then, and even expresses a desire to continue living her quiet life in Gleamscape when faced with a possible opportunity to regain the ability to walk.
Henry Buxton (Vibrava)
A very egotistical Vibrava with a dead-end job in Gleamscape who is convinced that he is actually royalty. He is first encountered by members of the party at the restaurant/bar in the hotel at Gleamscape and is later encountered again in Slak Rock. Is Maran's estranged brother.
- Based on a Dream: Henry and his character was not based on a dream had by his player, but rather one had by non-participant Troper No. 9001 wherein kablammin45 was roleplaying as the character (also a Vibrava) that would serve as the basis for Henry's character.
- Big Ego, Hidden Depths: Henry's ego mostly stems from being dissatisfied with his life, inferiority toward his brother Maran, and a desire to be something greater.
- Break the Haughty: When he humiliates himself in front of King Raleigh in Slak Rock and spills the beans on just why he wants to be a prince, he winds up crying under his homemade royal cloak and finally becomes open to listening what everyone has to say.
- Drunk on Milk: Acted vaguely alcholic-style surly while actually being a soda drinker.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Harbors some level of resentment towards his brother Maran, as Maran leads a much better life than Henry does. It certainly doesn't help Henry that Maran is doing this well even after being cursed by Liesl.
- I Just Want to Be Special: Deep down inside, Henry knows that he isn't royalty, but wishes above anything that he was since it would be better than the life he leads now.
- The Narcissist: Henry is very full of himself and isn't very quick to acknowledge his own shortcomings, even when others point them out.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Despite his rather hum-drum lifestyle, Henry is convinced that he is a prince (to the point of always wearing a homemade royal cape and crown) and is quick to rub this in the faces of everyone he meets. He eventually gets better...at least slightly better, anyway.
A Primarina who lives in Gleamscape and runs a souvenir shop. She is Belle's sister (and thus Speedy and Mauveine's aunt) and is less of a singer than Belle and Bryce.
- Genki Girl: Far less reserved than her calm and motherly sister Belle.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: Her full name is Aretha, but she is known to everyone as simply Arie.*
- Shout-Out: Her name is short for Aretha, i.e. Aretha Franklin, keeping with the theme of Primarinas named after singers started with Belle and Bryce.
A Lapras the party briefly meets in Gleamscape who gets transformed into by Smeargle!Lucy. Seems to be a friend of Genna and Harold's.
- Alliterative Name: The L's, obviously.
- Badass Baritone: Is described as having a quite deep voice. (Though he has yet to be seen fighting.)
- Childhood Friends: With Genna. He has since begun carrying Genna and Harold around the islands as they search for detective work.
Shane Pusaulo (Purugly)
Hat merchant who interacts with Dana and Niles.
- Expy: His personality and species are both references to Sanae Hanekoma from The World Ends with You.
- Meaningful Name: His last name literally means "cathead."
Mitsu Kata (Pangoro)
Master of the dojo in Gleamscape, and a practitioner of bougyo-jutsu, a defensive style. Initially meets Lars after Lars burns himself out while clobbering training dummies, but discovers Jani later the same day after her reckless use of a transfer orb lands her unconscious. Unlike most Pangoro, he smooths out his fur on a daily basis.
- Ascended Extra: Originally created specifically to help Jani readjust as a Purrloin, he also had a chat with Lars, trained Niles, and was the first mon to meet the humanmon Golett James when he entered the world. Then he started going into legends about humans while giving the humanmons a safe space to unload.
- Good Samaritan: Aside from generally nosing in with those at his dojo who appear to be struggling, he helped out an unconscious Jani and a disoriented newcomer Golett.
- Hidden Depths: Despite being of a species with a high attack stat and a berserker mentality, Mitsu specializes in defensive techniques and is beyond calm.
- Meaningful Name: Somewhat of a joke name — while his creator was going for a believable Japanese-sounding name, it's actually a play on mitsukatta, meaning "found". The NPC was originally created to find and train Jani after she used the Transfer Orb.
- Old Master: Or middle-aged, anyway. He's the current top inheritor of his dojo, regardless.
A Kecleon shopkeeper in Gleamscape who sold Jani/Sarah a first-aid kit and later made a brief appearance during the Slak Rock arc. She later bumps into Jani/Sarah yet again in Foxfell and decides to join the treasure hunting group that Sarah founds.
- All There in the Manual: The abrupt ending of the Eluant Canyon meant Cam's whereabouts following the events of the arc were never shown, but according to her player (and Hellbender's player as well), Cam has traveled to Roumant (Hellbender's place of residence) with Hellbender to join her treasure hunting group.
- Beware the Nice Ones: During the Eluant sidequest, when Cam discovers that Winnie the Ditto has been impersonating Tronne the Skitty, Cam is absolutely furious and gives Winnie an earful.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Harshly subverted as far as her appearance in Slak Rock goes. As King Raleigh's illegitimate children and potential heirs were being brought into his castle, Cam was among them and it seemed that she would play a major part in it. However, she was found to not actually be related to him after all and was sent back home to her store in Gleamscape.* But then the trope wound up being double subverted when she turns out to have accidentally ended up in Foxfell and joins the treasure hunters.
- The Chick: Cam's role in the treasure hunting group most of the time.
- Friend to All Living Things: This side of Cam becomes more obvious after she joins the treasure hunters with Sarah/Jani and Milo.
- Genki Girl: Has a generally sunny disposition in the face of her clumsiness, though she is quite saddened by the murder of the Mudsdale ticket-taker. She is later very enthusiastic about joining the treasure hunters and frequently talks about how much fun she is having while roughing it.
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Wears a blue vest that she tends to wear while working at her store.
- Incompatible Orientation: Cam mentions to Jani/Sarah that she attempted to date Dyson the Aggron once, with no success.
- Walking Disaster Area: Is incredibly clumsy. It winds up being the reason she ended up in Foxfell when she left Slak Rock as she got a concussion and stumbled onto the wrong boat leaving from Slak Rock.
Irving and Wilbur (Sceptile and Haxorous)
Introduced during the L'Arachel arc rather than the Gleamscape arc proper, Irving and Wilbur are a pair of amateur stage magician brothers whom Lucy and Benji briefly meet in Gleamscape while separate from the two main parties on Harnicara and in Blissparce. They are first seen as a Grovyle and Axew respectively until both are magically evolved to their respective third stages after meeting Silas.
Harry "The Glorious Bear" Horowitz (Ursaring)
Self-proclaimed Admiral (technically Ensign and truly just a pirate) of a small, rogueish fleet that operates out of Hollow Cove, which is at the outskirts of Slak Kingdom. Haughty and vain, he seeks to be the one true heir to the throne.
- BFS: Sort of — it's a spiked bat, far larger than a typical baseball bat, but it is absurdly huge.
- Large Ham: The lengthy introductions, his enormous spiked bat, and his regalia alone should make this abundantly clear.
- Overranked Soldier: Technically, his actual rank is Ensign, but he awarded himself an admiralty and actually managed to amass a small, but capable fleet. The reality is in the middle, as he's walking the line between privateer and pirate.
An Emolga who frequents and plays at a bar called the Fragile Faces. Thought the meeting of the bastards in the throne room was a party, and seems to be the least eager to take the throne, seeking only to meet and talk with the other bastards.
- Aborted Arc: Before the Slak Rock arc was abandoned due to the absence of the GM, Olias was planned to have become more fervent and radical in the defense of his home, leading him to come to blows with the Pawniarmy's Frederika. This technically came to pass per Word of God, leading to his official offscreen death.
- Killed Offscreen: Olias is confirmed to have died in the struggle for Slak Rock that took place after the party left for Foxfell, per the trajectory planned for his character.
- Shout-Out: Olias is a giant one to longtime Yes frontman Jon Anderson, the Emolga's name being a reference to his first solo album Olias of Sunhillow. He even speaks in the same accent that Anderson normally speaks in (or an approximation of it).
- Small Name, Big Ego: Implied when he whispers to Sarah about his gigs at the Fragile Faces.
- The Stoner: Smokes rolled-up Persim leaves, and even grows them at his house.
Major Stephen Col-bear (Teddiursa)
An unusually ripped Teddiursa, and assistant to Michael.
Fatima Olmer (Sharpedo)
Female Sharpedo, currently unnamed, who is "Admiral" Horowitz' first mate.
Richard "Rich" Stone (Tyranitar)
A Tyranitar who talks somewhat like a sailor. He was cursed by a Ninetales to turn everyone who touched with his hands into a copy of him for 10 minutes due to expecting everyone to think and act like him. Joins Maran and Cortez on their quest for Danjor Island.
- Clone by Conversion: Essentially what his curse entails, as Rich turns other Pokémon into doubles of himself by touching them. Unlike most examples, the transformed victims aren't any danger and quickly return to normal, and Rich resents having this power instead of abusing it.
- Gentle Giant: A Tyranitar Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
- Happily Married: In spite of his rather conceited nature, he seems to have a very nice relationship with his wife Polly and desperately wants to lift his curse so he can continue living with her without worrying about his curse affecting her.
- Humble Pie: Was a rather conceited character before being cursed. By the time the party meets him for the first time, it's clear that the experience was very humbling for him and he doesn't act high and mighty in the slightest.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite how egotistical he is, according to his wife, Rich really is a sweet guy deep down. Indeed, by the time the party meets him (some time after he was cursed), he is quite amicable and befriends the party fairly quickly, indicating that the curse enabled the "gold" part of his personality to really show.
- Laser-Guided Karma: Before being cursed, he was a quite selfish individual who didn't seem to understand that not everyone would think or do the same things as him. Acting this way towards an unknown Ninetails is what got him saddled with his curse.
- Talk Like a Pirate: Rich's thick accent comes off like this.
- Team Dad: Shows shades of this during the Blissparce side-story, being one of the more level-headed members of the party there and (although it was actually Taylor Amaranth as one of his doubles) is shown to be capable of giving Cortez an encouraging Rousing Speech when the Tyrantrum-turned-Tyrunt is at his wit's end.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Rich being a rather menacing looking Tyranitar married to a lovely Charizard.
An Aggron who runs Travis' Metalworks and was having a 30% off statues sale on the day of his debut. He's among many Pokémon to have made a mass exodus from Slak Rock as it was hitting the fan there, and he has been mentioned to have moved to Silversand with his Lairon apprentice Lawrence.
- All There in the Manual: Is acquainted with Renata and Grandpa Darnell according to his player. (The former through being an old sparring partner, the latter being an old friend.)
An instructor at the Slak Rock dojo who helps Sarah/Jani learn how to use Substitute and plays a part in how James learns to use Shadow Punch.
- Strange-Syntax Speaker: Talks in a very odd way, yes. Also stutters a-a-and draws out wooooords, okay.
Bea (Shiny Haunter)
A Haunter friend of Cyrus's who was at the Slak Rock dojo when Sarah and James visited and helped James learn Shadow Punch. She is later revealed to have some history with Dinah and was responsible for leading Dinah to Agartha in the past when Dinah was a wandering Sandile orphan.
- All There in the Manual: The reason for why Bea appeared to the then-child Dinah as a Meganium has not been disclosed yet, but the reason was because Bea was nervous that her true form would scare Dinah (an assumption that proved correct when she did break the facade to scare off a group of bandits threatening her and Dinah).
- Chekhov's Gun: Had a very brief appearance during the Slak Rock arc that amounted to little, but it's after she and Cyrus show up in Holstown during the L'Arachel arc while en route to Crystal City that it turns out that she has significant history with Dinah.
- Connected All Along: As it turns out, Bea was the same Haunter who lead Dinah, then a five-year-old Sandile, to Agartha when it seemed like all hope was lost for the young Sandile, a connection not made by Dinah until after Bea has long since left.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: In a sense; Bea has dissolved and altered her gaseous form to take on the ghostly appearances of other Pokémon, such as Dieter, Lane, and, in the past, a Meganium. Every time, she is only able to shift her ghostly body and not her hands.
Genna (Meinshao) and Harold (Shiny Koffing)
A pair of travelling detectives who travel around the islands in search of mysteries to solve while looking for a missing ex-student named Phoebe from the Spivey University in Gleamscape who has turned to a life of looting and crime. The party first encounters them in the aftermath of the Priscilla plot. Genna, the Meinshao, is cool-headed and somewhat stoic, but always looking to take on new mysteries. Harold, the Koffing, is louder, more energetic, and a tad bit neurotic. They're good friends with Leonard the Lapras, who carries them around the islands on their journey.
- Defective Detective: Genna once failed to properly solve a crime that lead to disaster, which devastated her and lead to her relearning the art of detective work all over again. It still bothers her to this day.
- Character Tics: Harold has a tendency to involuntarily overinflate and explode whenever he gets startled. An unfortunate tic as it tends to leave him knocked out for several minutes.
- Chekhov's Gunman: The party bumps into them briefly as they are trying to locate Priscilla. They show up after Priscilla's demise and reveal themselves to be detectives trying to locate Priscilla themselves. (And trying to figure out what happened to the unfortunate Tropius whose house Priscilla operates from.)
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Genna wears a blue vest. (Harold, being a Koffing, obviously doesn't wear anything.)
- My Greatest Failure: Genna used to be a detective on the police force in a small town called Whispering Pines until she made a mistake that got some of the cops on the Whispering Pines police force murdered. She immediately turned in her badge and spent months relearning how to be a detective before befriending Harold (a former cop) and setting out to solve any mysteries around the islands in the right way.
- Older Sidekick: Harold is 15 years older than Genna.
- Vomiting Cop: Harold admits to not being able to be around particularly gruesome crime scenes without heaving. Ironically, he is a species known for being nauseating himself.
Nicknamed "Nix." An instructor that teaches the move Extrasensory to Nyquil and Dana. Also gives Niles a manual to later learn Flame Burst.
Pollyana "Polly" Stone (Charizard)
Pollyanna, or just Polly for short, is Rich's wife, a Charizard who runs the Hotel Carracosta in Slak Rock. Rather sweet (and mildly snarky), she still loves her husband in spite of his faults (and curse) and kicking him out of her house until he can get rid of his curse. Has two twin Charmeleon siblings named Cree (who works at the hotel) and Radar (who works at Mullion's)
- Happily Married: She and Rich. She is suggested to have been very patient with Rich's egotistical behavior (since she knows he's a sweetheart deep down) and even sees him off and misses him dearly while he's on his journey to Danjor Island.
- Miss Fanservice: Is described as looking very attractive as far as Charizard go.
