Race: Unknown, but definitely in the ‘brown’ category. (Mixed, with South Asian and Black both somewhere in there.)
Ethnicity: Unknown. It’s kind of a sore point.
Relationships: Johara (sister)
Theme Song: Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf) by AWOLNATION
Private detective (sort of) and not really a medium. Kind of a misanthrope, a little depressed, and really, really introverted. Likes girls, doesn’t like sex, kinda likes relationships? Super doesn’t like boys.
Race: Mostly unknown, but enough Black heritage to be obvious/labelled as Black
Relationships: Jamal (sister)
Theme Song: King and Lionheart by Of Monsters and Men
Dead, still adjusting to it. Jamal’s conscience, not always a very good one. Idealistic to the point of naivete, but she’s fourteen and thinks that’s a pretty good excuse. Really scary when she’s mad. Really likes biology.
Ethnicity: Quebecois and Bajun
Relationships: Andre Lavolier (father); Esme Sealy (mother)
Theme Song: Into The Fire by Thirteen Senses
Cab driver by trade, neutral ground by choice, collector of strays and director of supernatural and paranormal traffic. Accidentally cryptic, purposefully cool. Demisexual, buddies with Dionysus, only a bit goth.
Pronouns: she/her, they/them
Ethnicity: Canadian? Why are you asking her this? (Her family’s French.)
Relationships: Cassandra (twin sister), Jason (brother), Alex (brother)
Theme Song: I Can’t Decide – Scissor Sisters
Ex-sex worker (still dabbles from time to time), reformed conwoman and the perkiest punk you’ll ever meet. ADHD, BPD and a multitude of other acronyms that she’s not shy to tell you about. Pretends to hate poetry until you recognize the Allen Ginsberg quote on her t-shirt. Kind of harsh on newbies, not on purpose; she’s just not good at subtlety.
Ethnicity: Canadian, French-European background
Relationships: Willow (twin sister), Jason (brother), Alex (brother)
Theme Song: Shalott – Emilie Autumn
Writes everything down and was that one straight-A student everyone hated until she accidentally blew up her house. Currently quasi-homeless and the ‘boss’ of sorts of the downtown area for elementals. Doesn’t feel physical pain, which is not the advantage you think it is. Aroace and autistic; whenever somebody brings up the “triple-A” thing she threatens to dangle them off a building.
Age: ??? (Somewhere from her vague early thirties to her stated age of nine hundred-ish. Really, who knows.)
Race: White Irish (She is old enough that this matters.)
Relationships: Semi-unclear. Some sort of past relationship with somebody called Guthrun.
A possibly-murderous (nobody’s CONFIRMED it) shapeshifting, hallucination-inducing walking nightmare who is weirdly pleasant and kind of socially awkward when she’s not trying to kill people. Prone to mood swings and odd shifts in personality, and doesn’t seem to quite be caught up with the Modern World. Stalking Jamal and Jaylie for – it would appear – separate reasons, which indicates a general tendency towards bad decision-making.
JAYLIE BRAITHWAITE & CO
Ethnicity: Black Nova Scotian/Haitian
Element: Sulfur & Mercury
Relationships: Offscreen family, friends with Gurjas Chaudhury, in a system of six (to be listed below)
He/him, protector, in his late 20s. Arose partially from tales Jaylie’s dad told her about Baron Samedi, but made PG-13 since she was very little at the time, so instead of alcohol and cigarettes, Sunvay overindulges on Pepsi and lollipops. He has six fingers on each hand and an extra joint on each of them, and a skull painted on his face that presents as vitiligo in the “real world”.
She/her, caretaker, early-to-mid-20s. Has a fox-head and serves as the voice of balance and reason where she can.
She/her, persecutor. Photo-negative flip of Jaylie, so “theoretically” white but not quite. Aggressively gaslighty, with theoretically good intentions.
Race: Mixed Black/White
Relationships: Married partner Robin Song, long-term partner Luka Novak, son Zinc Persad-Song
Element: None. Poor baby.
Relationships: An offscreen family, really
