Ritchie the Ratcreature
His first appearance in TOBT is here.

Ritchie is not exactly a rat, but a lovecraftian ratcreature, so his anatomy has human and rodent elements. (Although in an opposite way then Jenkins Brown; he has a somehow anthropomorph body with a ratskull.) He has learned to use magic portals from Ariane, but no more magic then that. His backgroundstory is not available as webcomic but can be found in the paperback "Behind The Scenes."

Musikmaschinist
His first appearance in TOBT is here.

A robot built in a hightech world that never suffered the big oilcrisis and the cultural degeneration it caused. He was programmed as music expert system and given to Ariane as present. He knows everything about all bands listed in the oak collection. His outer shell was destroyed in an accident, but a mechanic in another world repaired him with standard parts, giving him his new ruggy design. Due to his programming he can only speak Lübke-english. He is able to use magic portals , but is not very skilled in that. His backgroundstory is not available as webcomic but can be found in the paperback "Behind The Scenes."

Suttung
His first appearance in TOBT is here.

Suttung is a powerful car demon summoned by Ariane. His appearance resembles a KFZ 251, but he is a "civilan" version with whitewall tires and matte-finished black paint. He is almost invincible, has secret powers, but will not tell about him, as car demons never bother to speak.
