Heretical Edge Cast

Reader BBBence1111 has been amazing enough to put together and maintain a list of established Strangers/Alters. You can find that list here.  All credit for the list and for going back over everything that has been written both here and in discussion forums goes to him.

Similarly, if you would like to see a list of what powers and abilities possessed by all the different characters who have appeared in the story so far, reader Squornshellous Beta has you covered. You can find the list she’s put together right here.  Be warned, however, that there are obviously spoilers.  As long as you’re caught up, however, it should be a damn good resource for keeping track of who has what. All credit for the list goes to her.


(Those with more than one duty are listed more than once. Certain teachers not encountered or relevant to the story thus far are not listed yet. The following list is only those encountered by or important to Flick in some way. More will be added as the story continues. Please note that this means spoilers may arise if this page is read before you are fully caught up on the story. It is also a work in progress, meant for easy reference for readers to keep track of characters.)

Douglas Frey – Short, skinny boy whose messy blonde hair is always covered by a black New York Rangers hat. Wears the green uniform for the Hunter track, and his ‘weapon’, such as it is, appears to be a simple black fountain pen. However, drawing any simple object (sword, ladder, door, shield, rope, etc) with the pen will allow that object to be stored within the pen’s memory. The pen may hold up to ten separate objects in its memory at a time. Whenever he wishes, the wielder may conjure a physical copy of that object that lasts for about ten minutes. Heretic-born.Switched from Development to Hunter in the second semester. Aura color is pale turquoise.

Heretic-Born. Aura color is forest green.

His uniform has the red trim of the Explorers. Bystander-kin. Aura color is orange.


Tyson Gray – Burly, rough and tumble looking boy whose clothes are always ripped and dirty, and often shows bruises from his rough training despite the fast healing powers. Dark blonde hair that’s almost brown, with a scraggly goatee. Wears the white trim of the Security track. Weapon is a labrys (axe with two blades at the end)


Harper Hayes – Bubbly Caucasian girl with sea-green eyes who wears her hair in pigtails and dyes it bright, bubblegum pink. Is always smiling and cheerful, and tends to cover her uniform, weapon, books, and everything else with bright stickers. Stands about five foot seven, though it’s hard to measure since she’s usually found bouncing up and down and seldom remains still long enough to try. Wears the skirt version of the uniform with green trim for Hunters. Weapon is a pair of gauntlets that are capable of generating dozens of different types of grenades (concussive, heat, freeze, sonic, water, etc) into the user’s hands to be thrown. Gauntlets are also capable of projecting a brief forcefield for use when explosion is too close. Bystander-Kin

Russell Bailey  – Five foot, eleven inch tall boy with dyed bright red hair, an assortment of tattoos, nose piercing, and other obvious signs of his (personally regretted) punk-rock past. Uniform has the green trim of Hunter track similar to his teammate Harper. Weapon is a glaive. Any time the glaive draws blood from anyone or anything, it gains one charge. By expending a charge, the glaive may create a ‘blood-golem’ duplicate of the thing it drew that particular blood charge from. The blood-golem looks like a dark red, semi-liquid (jello-like) doppleganger of the subject and tends to have weaker versions of the subject’s powers and skills. Only one blood-golem can be maintained at a time, and the duration it lasts depends on how much blood was used as well as the power of the subject. The more powerful the wielder, the longer more powerful blood-golems can remain. Bystander-Kin

Shiloh Lexx – A slim, young woman who stands five foot, three inches tall. Brunette hair is cut fairly short, falling just above the shoulders at its longest point in the back, while the rest is cut shorter leading into jagged, scruffy bangs. Wears the pants version of the uniform with the light blue trim of the Development track. Weapon is an wrist/arm-mounted computer capable of remotely hacking into and taking control of almost any object, even non-computerized objects such as simple doors, older cars, and guns. Any hand-held object the wrist-computer ‘hacks’ is also capable of being created in solid-light holographic duplicate form for her to use, such as ‘hacking’ the sword that’s being swung at her or the gun that’s being fired at her to create a duplicate in Shiloh’s hands. Heretic-Born

Eiji Ueda – Tall, muscular Japanese-Canadian boy who stands six-foot four inches. Built like a linebacker, but is actually almost as much of a bookworm as Vanessa Moon. Uniform has the white trim for Security track, and his weapon is a cyberform creature capable of transitioning between four forms: a rhino, a motorcycle, a suit of power-armor, and the form it is most often in around the school: a hiking-style backpack. Heretic-Born

Summer Banning – Five foot, six inch tall black girl with dark hair pulled into a simple ponytail. Wears the purple trim of the Investigation track on her pants version of the uniform and tends to behave and talk incredibly morbidly. Enjoys gross, dark humor and making people uncomfortable. Weapon is a staff with a rotating circular saw at one end and shock-prod at the other capable of generating lethal amounts of electricity. At any point, the staff can be folded down so that the spinning blade falls directly between the prongs of the shock-prod. In this mode, a pair of handles and a trigger emerge from the folded-down weapon, and it may act as a railgun, launching individual teeth from the saw which are replaced after a brief time. Heretic-Born.

Freya Sullivan – Tall, red-haired, amazonian woman built like a warrior goddess who wears the pants version of the uniform with the red trim for the Explorer track. Weapons are a warhammer and shield that combine to create a rocket launcher which is capable of projecting a variably-sized forcefield around its intended target, containing its explosive radius as the user sees fit. Heretic-Born.
