If it feels like he's staring right at you... HE IS!

I am less concerned with Chaos and Order, and more with Good and Evil. Chaos can be good, just as Order can be corrupted.

Either one can stray from their purpose. The mistake is thinking that Chaos and Order must be in opposition, when the truth is, they are meant to be in balance.

Since the beginning of time, the forces of Order and Chaos having been playing a long game for the fate of the Omniverse, the sum total of every Universe both "real" and "unreal".

In some Universes, the game erupts into all out war. In others, it's little more than a friendly competition. Sometimes the pendulum swings in Order's favor, then in Chaos', then right back around again. Ultimately though, neither side has ever been able to actually win the game.

Which is just as well, because if either side were to completely eradicate the other, the game would end. And the game... is existence itself.

The Spectacular Omniverse as the name implies, began as a spin-off of The Spectacular Gargoyles roleplaying community on the question-asking site Formspring.

Thanks to a collaboration between Thomeheb, Dr. Anton Sevarius, The Terrible Tinkerer, and Prospero all of which was ultimately orchestrated by The Light from behind the scenes, a "Trans-Universal Gateway" was opened in October 2011 that allowed the various ethics-deficient scientists to access other Universes in order to steal technology and genetic material.

However, what they discovered was far greater than they bargained for: a vibrant cosmos teeming with life; the life of every single story that has ever been told, both fictional and nonfictional. From Discworld to The Legend of Zelda to Digimon to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, there appears to be few if any limits as to the worlds accessible by the Gateway.

The roleplay used to span dozens of connected Universes, each with their own casts of heroes and villains. Unfortunately, pretty much all of it has been lost ever since Formsping went bankrupt and was re-acquired by OK Cupid, which wiped all of the pre-existing accounts to start anew. Even at its peak, the narrative was scattered between dozens of Formspring accounts, leaving this wiki as the only coherent record of the story for the outsiders.

The "True Lords of Order":

The Man in White

  • I Have Many Names: When asked about him, The Auditors state that he's been variously known as the Light of Ruin, The Nothing, Nowheremon, Tabuu, the Void, the Edge, the All-Encompassing. The Harvester, the Never-Was and the man in white.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: See I Have Many Names entry above.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: The Auditors believe that he's devoured trillions of universes at the very least. In his own words:
Chaos is the natural state of the Omniverse. Order, in any meaningful sense, is an aberration. This is the only reasonable conclusion that observation of the entire history of existence can yield.

So if existence naturally leads to Chaos - are you following me so far? - then there is only one true way to enforce a meaningful and lasting Order.

And that is by ending it all.

The Auditors of Reality

  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: When asked about the Celestial Digimon, The Auditors state that Ophanimon's title as the Guardian of Life and Love already disqualifies it from being an ally, simply because love is "an intangible insanity so repulsive we can barely move to articulate it".
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: They intend to pull this on The Man in White once he's done devouring the "infected" planes, believing that he's "far too burdened with personality and individuality to have a permanent place in an Omniverse of True Order".

Lords of Chaos:

Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order, because it is better organized.
Terry Pratchett

The Lords of Chaos are (unsurprisingly) a rather diverse and eclectic bunch. Some are Eldritch Abominations hellbent on tearing all creation down around them, others are little more than (mostly) harmless pranksters and yet others are legitimate forces for good in their home universes. Chaos embodies Freedom and Imagination just as much as it does Madness and Destruction.

The Chaos Posse:

Recently, the former Calormen God and Narnian Lord of Chaos, Tash, has begun organizing some of the more malevolent Lords of Chaos into an unholy alliance affectionately known as the "Chaos Posse".

Tash the Inexorable and Irresistible

  • The Atoner: After plaguing Equestria with Chaos for eons, Discord has recently sworn to use his powers only for good... most of the time.

Ronnie Soak AKA Kaos:

Anthropomorphic Personification of Chaos and former Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse (he left before they became famous due to creative differences.) His Plane of Origin is The Discworld.

Klarion, the Witch-Boy

Archenemy of Dr. Fate and a member of The Light on Earth-16.

Set, the Red Lord

Egyptian God of Storms, Deserts and Chaos. Like Apothis, he also originates from The "Riordanverse"

Characters from The Spectacular Gargoyles:

Also known as Universe-2196169498, it's the prev. A mash-up of Gargoyles and The Spectacular Spider-Man, as originally explored by Greg Weisman himself in the radio play Religious Studies 101: A Handful of Thorns. A full character list for the

This section lists the characters from that universe that became newly relevant to the Omniverse:

Thomeheb:

  • Manipulative Bastard: The way he sweet talked the Animorphs in order to steal their technology and imprison them in order to try and extract the morphing ability from them. They were attempting to play him too, but he was better at it.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: His collaboration with Demona, as bad as its intended results were, very nearly got Universe-2196169498 devoured by the man in white. He remains unaware of just how close they came to total annihilation.
    • He is, however, aware of the other side-effect of leaving the Gateway wide open: letting in armies of The Heartless. This scared him enough to induce a partial Heel Realization.

The Tinkerer/Phineas Mason:

An inventor for hire and responsible for creating Thomeheb's Trans-Universal Gateway in the first place.

Dr. Anton Sevarius:

A geneticist for hire, he analyzes genetic material extracted from out-of-Universe subjects. And, more often than common sense would probably dictate... clones them.

  • Weapon of Choice: When it comes to getting his samples, he often uses Robotic Mosquitoes, designed for surreptitious extraction of genetic material.
    • Which doesn't prevent them from getting destroyed. A lot.

Prospero:

A sorcerer for hire, using the Gateway to search for mystical artifacts.

Trans-Universal Cyber-Automated Probe/TUCAP:

A probe designed to extract technology for the good Doctors. A zap from Will Vandom's Quintessence, however, granted it sentience.

  • Legacy Character: Currently, we're on Unit 16.0, thanks to...
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Tends to happen depressingly often to the TUCAP probes. The current mode is understandably a tad... ticked at the Doctors' callousness to its plight.

The W.I.T.C.H. Multiverse:

The Guardians of Kandrakar AKA W.I.T.C.H.:

Will Vandom:

The Quintessence Guardian. She holds the Heart of Kandrakar, which gives the other girls the power to transform into their guardian forms.

The Water Guardian. Known for being the class clown at her school.

Taranee Cook:

The Fire Guardian, Taranee's hobbies include dancing, math, and photography. She later starts liking Nigel, a former delinquent.

  • Telepathy: One of her powers... and the reason why the Guardians don't need telephones to talk between them.

Cornelia Hale:

The Earth Guardian, Cornelia is from a wealthy family and is easily one of the most popular girls at school.

  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: She uses her "powers" for good, and not just her earth ones...
  • Rapunzel Hair: She has long blond hair in human form, but it grows out so that it almost reaches the floor in Guardian form.

Hay Lin:

The Air Guardian, Hay Lin is a bit of an airhead. She enjoys art and comic books. Her family manages the Silver Dragon restaurant.

Other Characters:

Blunk

A "passling" (a smelly, goblin-like creature with the uncanny ability to sniff out portals between worlds) native to Meritian. He's a smuggler by trade, though he prefers being called a "trader" or "businessman."

  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Usually he's not much use in a fight, but he's surprisingly resourceful when he needs to be, and on occasion even gets a genuine badass moment.
    "Blunk not scavenger — Blunk warrior!"
  • The Nicknamer: Irma is "Funny Girl", Taranee is "Brainy Girl", Cornelia is "Blondie Girl", Hay Lin is "Smiley Girl", and Caleb is usually referred to as "Best Friend Caleb".
  • Our Goblins Are Different: They are called Passlings, and they travel through the dimensions looking for goods to sell.
  • The Pig Pen: Has traces of this; he hates taking baths and is never happier than when collecting garbage.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Has this dynamic with Caleb for a while (type 1), but Caleb warms to him over the course of the series.

Caleb:

The leader of the rebels and Cornelia's boyfriend.
  • Fish out of Water: Has trouble adjusting to Earth in both formats, though he gets better.

Queen Elyon

Matt Olsen:

Will's boyfriend, as well as a would-be musician.

Nerissa:

The former Quintessence Guardian. She attempts to rule the world by defeating Phobos and the Guardians.

  • Anti-Villain: Subverted; much like Demona, she likes to think she's a Type III, but the other characters aren't buying it.
  • Bi the Way: Was lovers with Julian and Cassidy.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She wants to create a peaceful and ordered universe - and because she's a megalomaniac, she sees conquering the whole thing as the best way to do this.

Prince Phobos

The evil prince of Meridian.
  • Evil Overlord: What he used to be.
    • Sorcerous Overlord: He's not as powerful as Elyon, but all Meridian royalty are implied to have very potent magical powers, and he's still stronger than all the season 1 Guardians combined.
  • Kick the Dog: Let's just say the he does this a lot.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Does this to Nerissa and Miranda.
  • Meaningful Name: His name means fear and is also the name of the Greek god of fear.
  • Obviously Evil: While not quite a full on Card-Carrying Villain, he's pretty close, never attempting to disguise his regime as anything but the oppresive dictatorship it is unless Elyon's around.
