The titular character, Vincent Bellingham.

The Lonely Vincent Bellingham is a webcomic about an uncommonly stubborn young man who tracks down his professor's old friend. He finds the person, whose name is Victoria, but she happens to be a vampire now and seemingly has no idea who the professor is. Her two adopted children are also supernatural creatures. Plot ensues.

The comic is by Diana Huh, who is also a professional storyboard artist (currently for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power). Unfortunately, it has experienced Schedule Slip and last updated in 2018.

The Lonely Vincent Bellingham contains examples of:

  • Ambiguously Human: After learning about Victoria and Ursula, Vincent presumes that Luke must be some sort of magical creature too, though he seems pretty normal. He's a werewolf.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Vincent does this when resorting to blackmail to convince Victoria to let him stay with her family.
  • Cute Witch: Ursula, who is a little girl.
  • The Faceless: Vincent's professor has been seen in a flashback, but only from behind his chair.
  • Motor Mouth: Ursula, who, during the intermission, manages to fill an entire panel's backdrop with just her words.
  • Nice Guy: The cast page actually described Vincent as "a not so kind man," since he starts off seeming nice but also proves stubborn enough to blackmail a family of supernatural creatures.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Victoria has pointy ears, can float in the air and is perfectly capable of being awake during the day. She does still seem to have some aversion to the sun, as seen when Luke notices her approach and quickly draws a curtain over a window.

  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Luke is a werewolf, which leads to this as-yet-unexplained exchange:
    Vincent: Wait, a werewolf? You don't really seem like one.
    Luke: I'm...not very good at it.
  • Parental Favoritism: Victoria to Luke, though probably just because he's better behaved.
    Victoria: Go to your room.
    Ursula: Aww but Vicky—
    Victoria: NOW. [to Luke] You too love, go on.
  • Pointy Ears: Victoria has these, despite otherwise looking pretty human.
  • The Quiet One: Luke is silent for the entire first chapter. When he finally speaks in the interlude, the Alt Text comments "Luke, you can talk?!"
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Luke and Ursula, respectively.
  • Sliding Scale of Vampire Friendliness: Victoria's mercy is debatable. She is obviously not the kind of vampire that is sometimes depicted as a crazed, bloodthirsty monster; however, this means that she would rather kill Vincent with a gun than by draining his blood.
  • Suddenly Speaking: Luke doesn't speak until page 46. The Alt Text expresses surprise.
  • The Unmasqued World: Apparently; Vincent mentions that there were witches like Ursula living where he grew up, though his father didn't approve of them. He's surprised to learn that Luke is a werewolf, but only because he apparently doesn't look like one, not because he was unaware of werewolves' existence.
  • Unsound Effect: IGNORED.
  • Wizarding School: Ursula mentions that she'll have magic classes after her "spring initiation."
