Will's Family

    Susan Vandom
Voiced by: Lauren Tom

Will's single mother. In the cartoon and comics, Susan dates Will' s History teacher; in the latter marries him and gives birth to their son, William Collins.

  • Ambiguously Brown: It has yet to be revealed what her ethnicity is. Judging from her name and appearance, she is likely to be somewhere from the Middle East.
  • Amicable Exes: With Thomas (Tony in the cartoon).Averted in the comics. Downplayed in the cartoon series.
  • Glamorous Single Mother: Downplayed. Susan does take care of her daughter, but they do fight like all mothers and daughters.
  • Hypocrite: In "H is for Hunted" it was revealed that Susan lied to Will about seeing Dean again. When Susan started to reprimand Will about promising to get the laundry, Will retorted that she promised to stop seeing her teacher. Then, she really lays into her mom about the hypocrisy when she lied to her daughter on responsibility, while lying to her about seeing her teacher.
  • Lethal Chef: She put a cellphone into the soup she was making for dinner.
  • Like Parent, Like Child: She can be quite stubborn and sarcastic like Will.
  • Mama Bear: She will do anything to protect Will.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Susan was always a hot woman, but we get a peek of her in clothing that showed her curvy figure in "H is for Hunted".
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Tony' s Red; in personality she has more of Red, but is Blue because she's more responsible than Tony.

    Thomas/Tony Vandom
Voiced by: Dan Gilvezan

Will's long lost father. He shows up in his daughter's life unexpectedly and wants to win her love back. In the comics, he's called "Thomas"; in the cartoon series, he's known as "Tony".

  • Adaptational Heroism: In the TV series he is heavily implied to be irresponsible and disappeared for months. But now he just wants to reconnect with his daughter. He was a straight up Jerkass in the comics.
  • Adaptation Name Change: His first name was changed from "Thomas" to "Tony" in the cartoon.
  • Amicable Exes: With Susan. Averted in the comics. Downplayed in the cartoon series.
  • Archnemesis Dad: In the comics. But he's finally ridden of by Kadma.
  • Cool Car: Shown in "N is for Narcissist".
  • Evil Redhead: Averted in the cartoon. Played straight in the comics.
  • Fiery Redhead: Averted in both the comics and cartoon. He is more laidback and it turns out that Will adopted her "fiery" status from her dark haired mother.
  • The Gambler: Played very seriously and darkly for a youth comic.
  • The Gambling Addict: Why he needs the money.
  • Greed: His main reason for visiting Will in the comics.
  • Jerkass: More so in the comics. Inverted in the cartoon.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Only in the cartoon. It's true, he did leave for months and didn't bother to call or send mail to his only daughter. But, now that he's back, he wants to be a part of Will' s life.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Comics only. One would guess that Thomas might go through a Heel Realization when blackmailing his ex-wife and only using daughter to get money...he doesn't.
  • Karma Houdini: In the comics, he gets away with what he did and gets the money he wanted, and more, with the condition he'll stay away from Will. He also cheats his accomplice of his share when he doesn't need those pictures on Susan and the judge Cook anymore.
  • Long-Lost Relative: A rare version of the relative being the father.
  • Open-Minded Parent: Justified since he wants his daughter to love him.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Susan's Blue. In personality, Tony is more Blue, but is Red because of his recurring actions of being an irresponsible father.
  • Smug Snake: Shades of this.
  • The Sociopath: One can make a very good case for Thomas being one in the comics. He feels no shame in manipulating and deceiving his own family for selfish gain, cares about no one but himself, abandons his "allies" as soon as he doesn't need them anymore, and is an unpleasant and repulsive person overall.

    Dean Collins
Voiced by: Cam Clarke

Will's History Teacher at Sheffield Institue. He is dating Susan, Will's mother and later marries her. In the comics, he and Susan marry and have a son, William Collins.

  • Bad "Bad Acting": Noted on it by Will in the cartoon' s second season episode, "J is for Jewel".
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: As seen to the right.
  • Brainy Brunette: He has brown hair and is the History teacher at Sheffield Institute.
  • Butt-Monkey: Unfortunately becomes this when W.I.T.C.H. thinks that he was the spy sent to Earth from Cedric in the cartoon.
  • Cool Teacher: Tries to invoke this.
  • Curtains Match The Windows
  • Meaningful Name: "Dean" is usually a term for someone who is in charge of something. So, Mr. Collins is the "dean of History", since he teaches it.
  • Nice Guy: Dean is quite understanding and pretty cool. A lot of guys wouldn't even date a woman with a child. What does this guy do? He dates her anyway and bonds with her daughter.
  • Parental Substitute: More so in the comics for Will.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the second season episode, "M is for Mercy", Dean manages to pull Susan up to safety...using just one arm and sheer will.
