Nitrine K. Grendeer —Goblin—MainTrio—GrendeerFamily— To Nitrine, the world is her oyster - or at least, her tasty slice of pie. Gifted from birth with brains and abilities far beyond those of her fellow goblins (which makes her roughly as smart as a human being), she left her underground home to find fame, fortune, and other things. She is something of an inventor, with most of her inventions eventually blowing up (often that's actually what they're designed for). She rarely hesitates to lie, steal, cheat, fast-talk, backstab, betray, browbeat, sabotage, seduce, swindle, waylay, ambush or hoodwink anyone to further her goals - which generally involve having a good time.
Zintiel Lutinàn —Elf—MainTrio—LutinanFamily—Chaotic— She's crazy.
Oh, you want to know more? Okay.
High elves are gracious, elegant, righteous and noble. Except Zintiel. Zintiel does whatever she feels like at any one time, which may range from saving kittens from a fire to robbing a bank and anything in between or beyond. She doesn't let herself be bound by rules, social conventions or laws of physics. She appears to act completely randomly at times, but she's more clever than she lets on.
Marelle D'Acqua —MainTrio— They say that if you never stop learning, you'll never really get old. If that is true, Marelle's probably still an infant. Avid for knowledge in all its forms, she's been studying at 'the university' for who knows how long. She's already an expert on a vast array of subjects, both useful and trivial, but is usually not particuarly gifted in their application. She tends to be calm and reserved, but will speak up in the defense of sanity when things get out of hand. Which they often do in this house. Despite the obvious shape of her ears, she insists she is not a catgirl.
Arlen Lutinàn —Elf—Wizard—LutinanFamily— Zintiel's little brother is a laid-back, amicable young wizard. Well, he's still older than most of the non-elven cast. While no stranger to outlandish happenings, the girls' antics are a bit more than he's used to.
Morgana Honeydew —Halfling—RivalTrio—HoneydewFamily— This halfling girl styles herself a great and powerful force of darkness. She is an insatiable consumer of all things new age and occult: crystals, candles, spellbooks, tarot cards, star charts, lava lamps. She goes as far as dyeing her hair black to look the part. Whether or not her witchery actually works is debatable.
Prism —RivalTrio—PierceFamily— She goes to the university, putting a machine-like dedication into her studies, barely ever even sleeping. Aside from that, she tends to take antisocial behavior to the point of generalized antagonism, so she doesn't have (or want) many friends.
Sister Mona Theist —Human—RivalTrio—SistersOfHolyRetribution—TheistFamily— A travelling nun who is a bit TOO enthusiastic sometimes. As a member of the Sisters of Holy Retribution, she is an active supporter of the zealous punishment of sinful acts. Which you wouldn't know just by looking at her sweet, starry-eyed, angelic mug.
Crown Prince Lumigardo Altarmagon —Elf—ElvenRoyalFamily— This heir to the throne is definitely the manliest elf. His reputation as an invincible fighter and his ridiculously imposing stature tend to intimidate everyone. But he has a softer side if you get to know him.
Commander Tares Lutinàn —Elf—LutinanFamily— The eldest of Zintiel's many siblings, Tares is a stuck-up meanie. Er, I mean, he's a proud military officer, dedicated to maintaining elven traditions and his family's honour.
Cassean Lutinàn —Elf—LutinanFamily— Cassean was born a few years after Trivine, but that's a very short time to elves. So they grew up almost like twins. As an adult, he settled in a sort of protector role, avenging slights committed against his sister, whether real or imagined. Despite his bravado in this capacity, Cassean is an introverted and insecure kind of guy. He'd be pretty lost without his big sister, and doesn't have it in him to resent her leading him by the nose.
Trivine Lutinàn —Elf—LutinanFamily— Everyone agrees that Trivine is extremely beautiful. Everyone agrees that her older sister Illena is more beautiful, though. And that makes Trivine MAD. Trivine is a manipulative, bitter person. She delights herself in seducing men and tormenting people she doesn't like. She changes fiances almost as often as she changes dresses or hairstyles.
Lilas Lutinàn —Elf—LutinanFamily— Lilas likes nothing better than to sit and read a good book. None of that going to balls and socializing like the rest of elven society for her. Or not much, anyway. She can be shy, but is easy to get along with once you break the ice.
Sir Manfred Adalbert Portrind of Frownshire the Twenty-fifth —Dragon—FrownshireFamily— the girls' landlord. He's a tranquil, affable sort of fellow, except for the fact that he's a dragon, with all the size, strength, claws, teeth, fire breath and appetite for biped flesh that it implies. He sometimes assumes the form of a biped himself to better move around inside his pantry ... I mean apartment building.
Grand Vizier Reptilis —Goblin— This smug snake of a Grand Vizier wants to be King in place of the King. The fact that he's already in charge of everything is no good reason to stop hatching twisted schemes and laughing maniacally.
Graplen —Goblin—BogmarshTrio— One of three goblins who may or may not be Nitrine's cousins. They are all known to have weird yet distinctive speech patterns. Graplen is the strongest of the three, but that's not saying much.
Valessa Rijiane —Elf—LutinanFamily—RijianeFamily— The quintessential elven lady, Valessa is perfectly versed in all forms of etiquette and protocol. She is a close confidante of the elven Queen, and a model to her daughters. But she also has a less boring side, and she's been known to spend her free time in completely different pursuits.
Cryptos the Omnipotent —Human—Wizard— While he's not REALLY omnipotent, Cryptos is an actual wizard, as well as a local big wig. He owns a lot of real estate and runs a successful fortune-telling and wish-granting business from atop his wizard tower.
Groplen —Goblin—BogmarshTrio— One of three goblins who may or may not be Nitrine's cousins. They all will revert to wanton mischief if left unsupervised. Groplen is the nicest of the three, but that's not saying much.
Drake North (aka The Penguin Thief) —Human—Un-icornTrio— A career thief who's rather harmless, as criminals go. He suffers from a peculiar compulsion to steal only one specific type of thing. Unwitting party to Prism's experiments in romance.
Special Agent Aiko Stabbington —Human—SSA— Secretive government agent, partner with Agent Rowan. The two of them are technically junior agents, but their hypercompetence leads them to often be involved in matters above their pay grade. She was brought up from a young age to be the ultimate human weapon, but despite that she is friendly and laid back. Unless she decides to get outrageous.
Xior Lutinàn —Elf—LutinanFamily— Xior had his time, in his youth, where he was headstrong and brash and adventurous, but now he's totally dedicated to his family and his King. He is also one of a small group of elite archers, in direct service to the King. He is a firm, but kind father.
Croissant —Imaginary— She's not really a character in the story, but she shows up from time to time. A mascot of sorts (with the name to fit), she is your host and presents information and fun stuff about the comic.
Puce —Fairy—Un-icornTrio—TheRose-TintedGlass— A rare fairy businesswoman, Puce owns the Rose-Tinted Glass, a bar sometimes frequented by the main cast. She is generally unflappable and businesslike, but can be a smartmouth. 18 inches tall. Very pink. Knows some magic. Likes socks.
Deyce Nolakin —Elf—FangirlTrio— One of a self-proclaimed "Cult of Chaos", which is more of a Zintiel fanclub. These young elf girls idolize the Chaos Warrior and want to be just like her! Deyce is bubbly and chipper.
Vellin Tessiram —Elf—FangirlTrio—TessiramFamily— One of a self-proclaimed "Cult of Chaos", which is more of a Zintiel fanclub. These young elf girls idolize the Chaos Warrior and want to be just like her! Vellin is smooth and cool, but no less rebellious than her friends.
Ranica Otarin Rijiane —Elf—FangirlTrio—RijianeFamily— One of a self-proclaimed "Cult of Chaos", which is more of a Zintiel fanclub. These young elf girls idolize the Chaos Warrior and want to be just like her! Ranica is the most bossy, so she generally acts as leader. She is Zintiel's mother's brother's daughter.
Illena Lutinàn —Elf—LutinanFamily— The eldest daughter of the family, Illena is a beautiful, charming and generous soul. Just about everybody agrees that she is almost perfect that way. Some say she's TOO beautiful and TOO nice. But she can't help it, that's just how she is.
Prince Camambar Altarmagon —Elf—ElvenRoyalFamily— A prince of the royal house of the elf kingdom. He and Zintiel were engaged to be married, but over sixteen years ago she ran away on the eve of their wedding. Driven by his love, he's been pursuing her ever since, but without much luck. He seems to have a thing for birds. Third in line to the throne.
Special Agent Claudia Rowan —Human—SSA— Secretive government agent, partner with Agent Stabbington. The two of them are technically junior agents, but their hypercompetence leads them to often be involved in matters above their pay grade. Calm, collected and resourceful, this genius-level intellect came up with a temporal manipulation device at the age of ten.
Cee Bibras —Human—Un-icornTrio—BibrasFamily— A personable young woman who is preoccupied with her studies, fashion trends, and social justice. "Cee" might just be short for something and not her real name, but that's probably the only unusual thing about her. Probably.
President Athena K. Johnson —Human— Current leader of the Human Nation. She is a politician, or she wouldn't have gotten to this post. It's not an easy job, but she does genuinely try to do good with what power (and limitations) she has.
Gabriel Bannon —Human— Despite being a pompous idiot jerk, or possibly because of it, Gabriel believes that he is privileged, gifted with awesome looks, intelligence, wealth, and muscles. So he considers it his duty to spread goodwill and justice wherever he goes. He also thinks he knows best what's good for people - better than the people themselves. This can lead to problems?
Revel Lutinàn —Elf—LutinanFamily— The youngest of the family, Revel is an enigma, even to her own parents and siblings. She always seems to be there whenever something interesting is happening. She always seems to know something you don't, but she'll only tell you if you need to know. Nobody really knows what game she's playing, but nobody really minds having her around (if they even notice she's there).
Lady Wilhelmina Antoinette Portrind of Frownshire the Sixth —Dragon—FrownshireFamily— Or Minnie, as she prefers to be called. Sir Manfred's visiting niece is a young dragon girl who (scandal!) kind of prefers to stay in her (not-quite-perfect) human form. She is fascinated with bipeds and their way of life, but still has a lot to learn.
Chlorilin —FutureTimeline— A teenager who lives in the future. She kind of just wants to have fun, but with the friends she keeps, she ends up having to be the voice of reason more often than not. Very important adoptive parents. Mysterious bloodline.
Chief Tapposh Tarrosh —Orc—TarroshFamily— To this old warrior, what is best in life is to crush his enemies, to see them driven before him, and to hear the lamentations of their loved ones of any gender.
Helli Cronfidel —Elf—Manticores— One of Tares's manticores – who aren't actual manticores, just elf soldiers. Part of Division 5: the Manticore's Wings (Magical Support). Blonde. Eye tattoos. Self-important. Uses a pair of sickles.
Dame Katrisha Barabelle Chaospear of Dromaxie the Third —Dragon— While the dragon emperor doesn't really require any sort of protection, he likes having this strong, silent lady around to crush those who annoy him. Then he doesn't have to get his lovely smooth white hands dirty.
Peerless Suzeraine —Merfolk— Suzeraine is her name. Peerless is her title. Just because the merfolk head of state is a figurehead, chosen mainly for their beauty and charisma, and actual decisions are taken by a council of philosophers, doesn't necessarily mean she's a superficial ditz.
Korsh Tarrosh —Orc—TarroshFamily— A mighty princess, forged in the heat of battle. The heir apparent to orcish chieftaindom. Not because she's the current chieftain's daughter, but because she seriously kicks ass.
Hater —Goblin— Experienced Cavernball player, hand-picked to be on the winning team for his ability to obey commands without asking questions (or even talking at all) and his impressive stature (of about 4'4").
Sadasah Tessiram —Elf—Manticores—TessiramFamily— One of Tares's manticores – who aren't actual manticores, just elf soldiers. Part of Division 5: the Manticore's Wings (Magical Support). Short brown hair. Eye tattoos. Uses a staff.
Craze —Goblin— Experienced Cavernball player, hand-picked to be on the winning team for his ability to obey commands without asking questions (or even talking at all) and his impressive stature (of about 4'6").
Nashora Berillen —Elf—Manticores— One of Tares's manticores – who aren't actual manticores, just elf soldiers. Part of Division 1: the Manticore's Head (Tactical Intelligence). Has hair in pigtails. Uses a pair of daggers. Looks very similar to Hashar, but not related.
Baron Zedeon Athraxas Beaurubon of Halicornas the Ninth —Dragon—Wizard—Chaotic— Some dragons are hungry for meat. Some are hungry for gold, admiration, or peace and quiet. The baron here is hungry for power, pure and simple. Where most dragon's power comes from their own innate awesomeness, he always seeks out more than what he was born with, delving into secrets others dare not touch. So far the emperor still only finds him an amusing sidekick who occasionally has his uses, and absolutely not a threat... but someday... someday!
Princess Pulmatrah Altarmagon —Elf—ElvenRoyalFamily— While her older brother has a softer core under his rough exterior, this warrior princess is a metaphorical iron hand in a spiked steel glove. Disciplined and uncompromising, she expects nothing less than perfection from herself and her Kingdom's subjects. Second in line to the throne.
Hashar Carolys —Elf—Manticores— One of Tares's manticores – who aren't actual manticores, just elf soldiers. Part of Division 1: the Manticore's Head (Tactical Intelligence). Wears a hat. Uses a sword. Looks very similar to Nashora, but not related.
Bnia Ulyovins —Elf—Manticores— One of Tares's manticores – who aren't actual manticores, just elf soldiers. Part of Division 2: the Manticore's Torso (Melee Assault). Always has a creepy impassive expression. Uses an oversized mace.
King Crouton Mowton Grendeer —Goblin—GrendeerFamily— The undisputed leader of the Bogmarsh tribe of goblins is both courageous and wise. Actually not that courageous. And not really wise at all. You know, he's not even undisputed.
Rakab Konleor —Elf—Manticores— One of Tares's manticores – who aren't actual manticores, just elf soldiers. Part of Division 2: the Manticore's Torso (Melee Assault). Wears a headband. Uses metal knuckles.
Polly Theist —Human—Witch—TheistFamily— Sister Mona's Evil Twintm sister (both in the sibling sense). A celebrity in sorcerous circles, she has wide-ranging interests (both academic and financial) in mythology, folklore, mysticism, and the occult. She could be considered Bad Newstm.
Iodile Lutinàn —Elf—LutinanFamily— A mysterious multi-coloured elf child who floated down from the sky to be adopted by Tares. Nobody really knows where she came from, but she's so sweet that everybody just accepts her presence.
Omega, Scholar of Destruction —Human—Wizard—AudetteFamily— A dark wizard of the darkest darkness. Actually, his interest in destructive magic is purely academic, but that doesn't mean he's not a self-important jerkass. Zintiel says she blew him up.
Pierce —Human—PierceFamily— Piercetec is a well-known tech company, specializing in robotics, AI, and other futuristic life-enhancing appliances. The fact that no one knows much about Pierce, its elusive founder and CEO, is probably nothing to worry about.
Gali Rewolynk —Elf—Manticores— One of Tares's manticores – who aren't actual manticores, just elf soldiers. Part of Division 3: the Manticore's Claws (Stealth and Ambush). Red hair. Heterochromia. Uses a pair of chakrams.
Dian Iuliurnez —Elf—Manticores— One of Tares's manticores – who aren't actual manticores, just elf soldiers. Part of Division 4: the Manticore's Tail (Ranged Assault). Blonde. Uses long weighted chains.
Chucko —Harpy— This jovial harpy has a brilliant, genius-level intellect. Thanks to their incredible smarts, they find endless amusement in the blunders and hijinks of their fellows. Heaven forbid they try to help or anything!
