William Geiwitz: Peter's older brother, who took over the family farm when Peter moved to the city.
Apricot Arbor: A mysterious, mischevious person of indeterminate gender who was married to Peter for a time. Their eventual terminal illness led Peter and Penn to first meet.
Maxwell Flugelmeyer: Maxmillien's "son" (unbeknownst to most, he's actually a clone). Also Howard and Maxine's father. A lot of time and aging shenanigans are involved.
Maxine Flugelmeyer: Howard's older sister. Powers: a type of charmspeak that causes the listener to believe anything she says.
Lila (aka Belladonna): Howard's equally melodramatic villainous rival and eventually his wife. Powers: agrokinesis (the ability to control plant growth telepathically) and an immunity to plant-based poisons.
Caitlyn Gard: Steven Gard's wife, also a brilliant biologist. After his transformation, she dedicates her time to finding a cure or at least a treatment for her husband.
Miriam (aka Bee): One half of a popular duo of twin superheroes. Powers: a tranquilizing sting in her punch. She marries David post-story events.
Ashlyn (aka Bunny): The other half of a popular duo of twin superheroes. Powers: superspeed.
Comet "FJ" Trafford: A rather unhinged marine biologist and wannabe supervillain. He accidentally mutated a fish with wish-granting superpowers and immediately made this everyone else's problem.
Geoffery: FJ's poor wishing fish. Has human intelligence and can breathe air. Is very tired of FJ's shenanigans.
Elliot: A boy whose persistent nightmares begin to take physical form, eventually consuming the whole city in visions of their worst fears.
Mr. Moon: An antivillain who plunges the city into endless storms with a weather machine after the death of his daughter.
Cannibal: A monster woman with love-potion venom. She's literally a maneater. Unfortunately, the effects of her poison are contaigous...
A Lady: A mysterious figure whose kiss can (temporarily) reverse a key element of her target's personality.
Oleander "Ollie" Flugelmeyer: Howard and Lila's son. He also has agrokinesis, but is a rather laid-back guy who doesn't really want to become a villainous CEO.
Caspian Aragona (aka Rostam): A factory orphan who unexpectedly develops extremely strong telekinesis. He's one of Alan's (many) adopted children post-story events and becomes the city's next flagship superhero training under Edu.
Avery Gard: Steven and Caitlyn's daughter. She's born with a transformation and regeneration ability like Steven's.
When one of Howard's immortality projects goes wrong, Ardalan gets de-aged to about six years old. But instead of fixing this, Howard quietly adopts him and raises him alongside his biological son Ollie as the perfect heir to the Flugelmeyer business.
Years later, new CEO Alan Flugelmeyer is a ruthless businessman who does his "father" proud. But he begins to become suspicious of his own adoption, and decides to investigate whether he's related to his father's old assistant who vanished under mysterious circumstances. What he finds scares him—enough that when a superpowered orphan named Caspian tries to destroy the factory, Alan teams up with the kid to ruin the company and exact revenge on dear old dad Howard.
