Dr Thaddeus Sivana, who was doing it as a test run for his own future offspring, Magnificus and Beutia.
  • Reformed Criminal: They are slowly becoming one.
  • Thicker Than Water: When he gets the chance for a transfer to a nicer prison, Thomas refuses because he would be separated from Tuppence.

Atlantis

    Queen Mera 
The wife of Aquaman.

    Sephtian 
An Atlantian artificer that OL becomes acquainted with.

Younger of the two kings of Nanauve, which seems to run on a Spartan-style system where one ruler must always be present. Bit of a jerk, but responsible when push comes to shove.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Despite learning magic, King Sha'ark is basically a magic-enhanced aquatic melee fighter, not a full-blown caster. For this reason, he decides not to participate in the fight against Klarion in Displaced; he's not capable of fighting up to par on land.

  • Hidden Elf Village: They all made the deliberate decision to seclude themselves in a hidden island in the Aegean Sea.
  • Immortal Procreation Clause: Averted. While they're all immortal, the only thing stopping them from having children is that there's no men and they want nothing to do with men.

    Eris 
Paul's patron deity and the Greek Goddess of Chaos.
  • Bald Woman: She has a shaved head.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Whether she's helpful or destructive depends on her amusement. While she's supportive of Paul's desire to bring progress to the Themyscira, it's noted that she had her previous worshipers commit suicide in tribute to her when Themyscira became completely isolationist.

    Hera 
The Queen of the Olympians and the Greek Goddess of Marriage.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Not nearly as awful as she was in the original myths, where she'd often take out her rage on Zeus's lovers and illegitimate offspring because she couldn't do anything to him directly. While she's definitely angry about it, she has made no move against either Cassandra or Dr Sandsmark.
  • Angel Unaware: Accidentally invoked, but Paul didn't realize the distraught drunk priestess was Hera until after the fact. She in fact warned Paul that Hera was listening very carefully when he offered her advice.
  • Awful Wedded Life: While she loves Zeus, her marriage to him has been absolutely horrible with his constant philandering. It's telling how ecstatic she is when she realizes that divorce means no longer dealing with Zeus.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: She gets wasted in her temple when she has to face the fact that yes, Zeus cheated on her AGAIN and was lying about turning a new leaf.
  • Odd Job Gods: On the realization that modern marriages have divorces as part of the process, she becomes the Goddess of Marriage and Divorce. She now has a civilian identity writing a relationship advice column.
  • Oxymoronic Being: She did not understand how the Goddess of Marriage could justify a divorce since that would mean she's not married.

    Hephaestus 
The Greek God of Fire and the Forge.

  • Anything That Moves: He will sleep with anyone man or woman due to his fascination with humans and sex.
  • Boldly Coming: He makes it a career and lifestyle choice to sleep with as many humans as possible. It's pointed out that Humans appeal to him in a way that Martians don't.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: While he is a huge sleazebag, he does have a point that M'gann would need his notes on human shapeshifting if she wants to improve her capabilities from someone who knows how Martian shapeshifting works. And she'll need it if she ever wants to get physically intimate with humans.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He loves to have sex with any consenting person or otherwise mess with them, but even he refuses to have anything to do with Sonic Sally.

  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He took the time to speak with Orange Lantern and listened to his input on the Burning Martian issue once proof was provided without the assertive nature of the other martians seen so far.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Unlike the king who sat on the information of the Burning Martian, he decides to bring it to the royal conclave.

    Ma'alefa'ak 
A martian wildlife preservationist and M'gann's uncle.
  • Death of Personality: His original identity was erased because of the severity of his crimes, but K'hym J'onzz ended up reminding him. It gets removed later on again.
  • Evil Feels Good: Why his original self did cruel things.
  • Fake Memories: The current personality of his was a fabrication, done solely because they wanted him to pay his debt back to society.
  • Hidden Depths: He can't use most martian-based technology since he lacks telepathy. On the other hand, he can live on the surface without the fear of being alone from the minds of others, learned how to emote better with body language, and use Earth-based technology.
  • I Hate Past Me: Upon being brought back to how he was in the present, Ma'alefa'ak both hates and fears the monster he was.
  • Shapeshifting: Paul notes that his shapeshifting is remarkably human in terms of body language.
  • Telepathy: Averted in that he was born without the ability to use it. This prevents others from connecting to his mind, stops him from using Martian technology, and since there is a telepathic component to having children, he's effectively sterile.

  • That Man Is Dead: Both personalities consider one another dead.

    Senator Henry Knight 
A US senator who is aiming to become president.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: The meeting with OL gave him just enough of an idea that he managed to capitalize on it and plans to spearhead the connection between Atlantis' magical research and North America.
  • No Mere Windmill: Senator Henry Knight is dismissed by the public and made a laughingstock when he made an ill-informed bid to make a law banning magic after Orange Lantern mocks him in an interview informing the public on the events in Displaced. But Senator Knight was acting in response to an event caused by evil magicians that killed thousands of children when no politician dared to touch the topic.
    • Senator Knight later redeems himself politically after accidentally meeting Orange Lantern in a very informative talk. Orange Lantern gave him the most recent information explaining magic to non-magic users and discuss ways to boost America's magical defenses. Which is to initiate talks and trade with Atlantis, a magical-based country trying to establish relations with surface world countries.

  • My Greatest Second Chance: She and OL hope that the interview that he gave her will help her get back on her feet. We later learn that it gets published nationwide.
  • Reality Ensues: Unlike most characters, Dana faces the consequences of failing to make sure that OL gave informed consent when she didn't tell him that Cat Grant's interview was live and was fired.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Dana's interviews with Orange Lantern, Aqualad and Superboy were published nationwide.
  • Unknown Rival: OL didn't think of her as a threat, at all. This actually works to her favor.

  • Children Are Innocent: Believes that when Marie calls Danni her "special friend" that it's the same as saying she's her best friend.
  • Has Two Mommies: After his mother Marie marries Danni.

    Karsta Wor-Ul/Kristin Wells 
A member of the Kryptonian Stellar Navy who went AWOL when Krypton decided to go isolationist.
  • Sins of Our Fathers: She holds Kal-El responsible for Krypton because many members of the House of El supported isolationism. This was actually common on Krypton, where individuals were held accountable for the actions of other members of their house.

    Chantinelle 
A Succubus acquainted with John Constantine, she's brought into the fold to prevent her from becoming a problem later on.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: She's a Succubus that could fall in love, something that shouldn't be possible.
  • Every Man Has His Price: Paul basically promised to give her raw arcane power so she wouldn't interfere with what he and John had planned out of spite for the latter. He also mentions that the importance of it (getting rid of Nabu) was enough that he'd use the Ace of Winchester to permanently kill her if he had to, but he really didn't want to.
  • Horny Devils: She was a succubus until John, Paul, and Zatanna convert her.
  • Interspecies Romance: Had an affair with an angel.
  • Love Hurts: Post-conversion, she feels love as something tangible and is very aware of it... including how many relationships she ruined. Needless to say, it hits her hard until John tells her to start trying to make things right.
  • Love Redeems: Her love for the angel Tali acts as an anchor that allows her to use the Violet Light, changing her from a simple Succubus to a Love Elemental.
  • The Power of Love: She feeds off of love after being converted by the Star Sapphire.

    Michael Sisken/Terror Thing 
A psychic used in a ritual 12 years ago, his soul was trapped with Terror Thing when John Constantine stopped it and they ultimately melded.
  • And I Must Scream: His soul has been trapped with an Fear Elemental that is eating it, with him unable to stop it or call for help.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: How he eventually came to assimilate Terror Thing.
    Sisken: When I lived through all of the fears that made up the Terror Thing, I did suffer. Horribly. To start with. And then… Each time, the horror got a little less. And I became more inhuman. I'm not suffering, and I think that's the worst part. I should be, but I'm not. It just feels… Right, now.
  • Death Seeker: He longs for oblivion after being bonded with the Terror Thing for around a decade. He gets over it once he finishes Hijacking Cthulhu.
  • Driven to Madness: He attempts to do this to Nabu to loosen his connection to Zatara. It makes Nabu afraid enough to blow him apart.
  • Face Your Fears: Similar to Yellow Lanterns of the Sinestro Corps, Sisken has to embrace his fear in order to master it.
  • Fusion Dance: An unwilling variant, but he was with Terror Thing for so long that it consumed him to the point they were nearly completely merged. In the end, he triumphed and took everything that was left of Terror Thing.
  • Hijacking Cthulhu: OL wants him to do this by accepting and coming to terms with the fact that he's Terror Thing now. It... doesn't work the first time.
    • It does work the second time.
  • I Am What I Am: Ultimately, he has to accept what he has become now in order to master it.
    Orange Lantern: The choice isn't between you becoming a monster and not becoming a monster. The choice is whether you become a monster that knows what it is, that holds back, or one that revels in its own nature. There's nothing inherently evil about the power of fear, any more than there is avarice.
    • He eventually follows through with it, becoming more inhuman.
  • I Know What You Fear: He's capable of knowing what something fears as long as it is capable of it. Even Nabu isn't exempt from it.
  • Killed Off for Real: Killed by Nabu during Falling Action.
