UPDATE IN PROGRESS
A current list of most the characters that have been named in the comic so far; does not contain plot spoilers, but does give some background to characters that is not explicitly stated in comic yet in some cases.
Peter Kepler: There was little doubt that Peter was a talented investigator. He has an uncanny ability to draw the line before most people even see the dots. Unfortunately, his ability to model the outcome of a conversation exceeded his ability to actually hold one. Still, armed with his intuition, prodigious computer manipulation talents, and the most powerful Mage in the department as his partner, he was once a rising star of IDS Criminal Investigations.
And then he went rogue. Suddenly and completely dropping off the map, with even his partner shocked and confused, he was gone.
Now he’s back, but he’s playing a new game that no one quite seems to know.
Mium Efiate: A polite but peculiar boy that appears to be Peter’s quite capable shadow. His origin and story remain a mystery to most, and his skills are quite strange.
He is notoriously difficult to hold a normal conversation with, but seems to know a great deal of things he should not.
Naomi Atarah: An enthusiastic girl whose stated intention is to save the world. Blessed with a excess of raw magical power, she seems to be an innate “booster”, but lacks the ability to calculate complex spells.
Once a self-proclaimed Hero Without a Cause, she found a Cause now working with Peter, though one can only wonder if she truly knows what she’s involved in.
Relentlessly active, she’s rarely still for long. Some say that when she faces a challenge, she seems to enjoy overcoming it just a little too much…
“Miko“: A talented computer ‘security and data specialist’. Very poorly socialized, and may bite. Frequently elaborates the flaws of vexing strangers. Does not enjoy the out of doors.
Finds Naomi vexing. Follows Peter directions, but requires bribing to go outside or deal with people. Talks to Mium almost constantly. Is highly possessive of Mium and annoyed when he behaves strangely.
IDS, Criminal Investigations:
Kallisto Summers: An IDS Enforcer, Peter’s former partner. Once she and Peter were jointly instrumental in a meteoric rise through the ranks as partners but she was left behind when he went rogue. She was responsible for bringing in (or down) the target when Peter tracked them down, and as good at her role as he was at his; coming to Criminal Investigations branch from Situation Containment branch (colloquially known as ‘Monster Hunters’) she has more firepower at her disposal then the typical IDS CI Agent. She is resentful and suspicious of Peter’s sudden defection, as they were quite close before it.
Arron Kepler: The local Director for the IDS Criminal Investigations. His name is a well known one, a hero of times gone by who serves from the desk now. He was quite proud of his nephew’s rise through the ranks, and is deeply concerned by his defection. He cooperates as ordered, but is frequently concerned with growing lack of transparency in the IDS and its goals, though he remains quite loyal to the organization. Having fought in the war that founded it, he knows the risks of a world without it all to well.
Tom: An IDS Agent. He always carries a strange crowbar. By his appearance he seems to have been living in a boxcar or something.
Emmi Esk: An IDS Enforcement Agent, as well as the captain of the Criminal Investigations covert ops unit. She’s been assigned to Arron’s department for quite some time, and thus was very familiar with Peter. While she is several years senior to Kally, she considers the younger agent her friend. She frequently serves as Arron’s second in command and chief in group field operations.
Magical Security Bureau:
Tyler Weber: A foreigner to Malsa, he is quite loyal to his adoptive country. Determined, ambitious, upstanding, and generally exceedingly talented both as a mage and a leader, the Bureau recognized his merit, and responded accordingly. Placing him at the head of a new branch, the Magical Security Branch, known as the MSB, tasked with finding, investigating, and enforcing in all matters where the breach of law in magic and dimensional matters is concerned. Unfortunately this is shared turf with the IDS, and they are not fond having a shared jurisdictional.
Amy Selah: A competent mage who serves as Tyler’s assistant and nominal second in the MSB, she is quick to judgement and easily irritated, but dutiful and competent in both her role in the MSB and as a mage. Though lacking in impressive power, she is known to work hard and research extensively to keep her place at the top of the class.
Mione: Tyler’s self-appointed bodyguard, she is a cheerful if somewhat rowdy girl, who rarely takes things too seriously unless her colleagues are in danger. Unusually competent in the physical aspects of combat with high defenses, she serves as the front line of the Magical Security Bureau. Fairly clever, but tends to not get carried away with thinking things through beyond idle musing.
Maia Ethi: A short, rarely smiling woman.
Magnolia Dai: A tall, smiling woman.
Marc Idunni: Suspicious and quick to anger, he generally looks stern, sometimes angry.
Other Levenworth Academy:
Lisa: A green haired friend of Naomi’s. She knows Naomi from past terms when they went to school together; she seems to take her more energic friend’s tendencies and declarations in-stride. Whether this stems from not taking her seriously or from taking her seriously remains unknown.
Naomi suspect’s that she’s in somewhat involved with the Magical Security Bureua or another organization, but does not seem the least perturbed be this, still inviting Lisa to come along.
Arkady: A member of a ‘Family’ line; a remnant of the aristocracy of Malsa. While his status no longer signifies any explicit politic authority, Family lines tend to wield some level of wealth and authority.
He tends to show his rather traditional mannerisms, but is otherwise quite easy going and friendly.
Naomi suspects he reports to Bureau or another government agency, likely due to the tendency of Family lines to be integrated with the government.
Chief Cao: Works for the Bureau. Is very probably the Chief of something. Is Tyler’s sorta boss.
Ikirium Avon: CEO of Avon Industries after inheriting the company when his mother went missing. His only focus is continuing the projects his mother started, tending to neglect the business end of running a major corporation. Some object that the position of CEO isn’t inherited, but the members of the board all mysteriously insist.
Ryn “Ryn Tomorrow” Koko: When Ikirium inherited Avon, the ship would likely have sank with an inexperienced CEO who had little care for business, had he not brought with him Ryn. Ryn has taken a corporation that is behind its rivals in most profitable consumer markets, and made a fortune – largely on the brand of Ryn himself. He’s been known to sell out marketing conferences faster than many major concerts, and has generated millions of fans of Avon products, and “Ryn Tomorrow” himself.
Dr. Mir: The head of research for one of Avon’s main “red column” (as Ryn calls it) research divisions. Was previously less robot-looking.
Gate: The casual observer of Mir’s lab would think that he was an eternally slacking employee that appeared to badly need sleep. And may be dying of the plague. Further examination would reveal that he rarely leaves the lab, never sleeps, and actually does more work than anyone else in the lab, despite rarely using an input.
Most people conclude that he’s a fully integrated cyborg, and one of Mir’s early attempts to create a prototype, before she turned to the F-series chassis or whatever she’s done to herself. Whatever he is, he stays alive. Barely.
Jayce Myer: A field agent for Avon who has been around the block. Though his name doesn’t appear on the any of the “worlds most talented” in his line work those names tend to line up with “world’s most wanted”, so that may not be an accident. Many field agents from all lines of work respect that he is a dangerous and savvy opponent, and steer clear when they can. Though an adept natural mage, he embraces new autocaster technology for maximum advantage.
Ila F-10: The newest of the F Model Prototypes, she’s a bit odd. Though she generally acts like one would expect an android to, she has a tendency to show bouts of annoyance or frustration.
While it’s clear that she was created using the F chassis, exactly what powers the intelligence that animates it is a far greater question. While she has the ability to use magic, no one is quite sure if this is a breakthrough or not.
Saria: Ryn’s minion/secretary. He seems to trust her to follow vague and dangerous directions with discretion. She is fastidious, diligent and rule oriented.
Nick Otte: An IDS Special Agent who operates on behalf of headquarters. He is diligent and zealous in his adherence to the chain of command – unfortunately for anyone outside of headquarters, he has little problem reminding them that, who ever you are, IDS Headquarters outranks you. He takes pride in being named a Special Agent and uses the authority it bears without regard for tact or diplomacy. His father is Nelson Otte, one of the Directors of IDS Headquarters.
Rovak Stas: An affable and friendly red eyed man. The easy going nature is somewhat tarnished by his tendency to blow things up. While some may see blowing things up as the work of a psychopath, he is quick to assure you he is, in fact, a good guy. It says so on his business card.
He treats life very casually, a trait which may stem from the fact that he seems to posses some sort of regenerative ability verging on immortality.
Kyle Kepler: Arron’s brother. A member of The Civil Service.
???: A hacker of unknown affiliation. Looking for ‘an annoying bastard’. Seems to prefer not leaving her house. Does not appear that she sleeps very often. Speaks softly and without much inflection.
Looks like the mobile unit for Peter’s digital assistant, Query. Is generally referred to as an AI, as it has the ability to give conversational replies and interpret complex queries. This may be more accurate then many assume.
Currently in possession of Kyle Kepler. Definitely not suspicious.
