Halloween is my favorite Fandomania month. I can spotlight many supernatural characters for this column. I’ve covered vampires, werewolves, warlocks/wizards, and witches extensively. I felt it was time to give other types of supernatural beings a chance. Some are related to the aforementioned groups, but not all. They are gathered from books and TV shows. These magical and mystical supernaturals are crushworthy and deserve the attention. So, without further ado and in no particular order…
1. Olivia Moore (Zombie), iZombie
The quirky, brain-eating medical examiner is lovable on all levels. Liv is a fun, dynamic character and you never know how those brains will affect her. I also admire her devotion to solving crimes and doing the right thing. Liv’s own brain is smart, witty, and a person who loves and protects her friends.
2. Lucifer (Fallen Angel), Lucifer
The fallen star with his penchant for punishment is always entertaining. Lucifer’s snark and charisma are a potent mixture to those around him. I love the anti-hero or misunderstood hero types. Lucifer meets both qualifications, depending on his mood. He reminds me of Sherlock with a few demon qualities added on.
3. Bo Dennis (Succubus), Lost Girl
Bo handles her life as a succubus like a professional. Her career as a P.I. is aided mostly by her sharp intelligence and just a little of her natural magic. She is also a great example for the LGBT community with her fearless romances with men and women. Bo is brave, no matter the situation.
4. Castiel (Angel), Supernatural
Cas is a favorite here at Fandomania. He is the angel we all love and ship repeatedly. Castiel has chosen the Winchesters over his sacred duty many times. I think Castiel brings the heart back to the Winchesters when things get tough. Fans also love his deadpan humor and his discoveries of the human world.
5. Mercedes Thompson (Shapeshifter/Coyote), The Mercedes Thompson Series
Mercy is down-to-earth and lovable in so many ways. Fans love how she cusses at a stubborn car part at her shop during the day then bakes cookies later. Mercy is not afraid to tell others how she feels and do what is needed to save those she loves. Easily turning into a coyote is just another perk in her favor.
6. Wil Ohmsford (Half-Elf), The Shannara Chronicles
Will has a unique legacy to live up to, but he is just a regular guy in many ways. Will just wants to learn the healing arts, but he gets involved in a battle to save the entire world. He still finds time to get into trouble and make a few jokes. Being a half-elf doesn’t mean you need to be serious all the time.
7. Daisy Johanssen (Half-Hell Spawn), Agent of Hel Trilogy
Daisy is just the girl next door who consorts with goddesses and helps the police. She also enjoys movie nights with her mother along with solving her town’s supernatural problems. One of her biggest issues is finding clothes to hide her tail under.
8. Dorian Gray (Immortal), Penny Dreadful
In Dorian’s case, it’s the bad boy appeal. Dorian doesn’t try to be good, but neither does he try to be wholly evil. He can talk the stockings off anyone on the show. He has more charisma than any man should. His fascination with the strange and unusual makes him more appealing, as does his openness to new experiences. However, approach with caution!
9. Annie (Ghost), Being Human
Annie is the heart of the group on the show. Her compassion keeps Mitchell and George from falling apart. Annie’s love for them, not just unfinished business, keeps her in the human world. Annie never loses hope that they will all find peace one day. Annie’s soul is beautiful, both on the inside and outside.
10. Thomas Raith (Incubus), The Dresden Files
Okay, so Thomas skirts the line of being a vampire. However, he feeds on sexual energy and lacks some other vampire traits. I have a soft spot for Harry’s brother. He can seduce you one minute and defend you in a fight the next. He also grows more mature during the series and becomes more of a family with Harry.
