  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Slightly Damned is a Comedic Drama Fantasy webcomic based on the "life", death, and misadventures of Rhea Snaketail, as well as her "Demon supervisor", Buwaro, and later on, the socially awkward but Badass Angel Kieri "Snowy" Suizahn.

The humor and emotional drama is derived from a full cast of varied and compelling characters, and the complex but rewarding plot is sure to inspire many an Archive Binge well into the wee hours of the morning. It updates every Saturday with a large full color page, and can be read here.

Notable for having the proud honor of being perhaps the only webcomic in existence with Reverse Schedule Slip.


Characters include:

  • Rhea - The Jerk with a Heart of Gold, recently deceased.
  • Buwaro - The moron demon given charge of Rhea during her stay. Insufferably cute and naive.
  • Kieri - An angel, currently lost in Medius. Socially awkward, with the Cute Bruiser mixed in.
  • Thadius - Buwaro's beloved pet rock. Supposedly a girl.
  • Death - A kindly fellow who just happens to deal with his namesake everyday. The third god of the world, and lord of judgement. Recently revealed that Death is, or was, much less kind. The Death we know is actually Darius.
  • Sakido - Buwaro's older sister, and a former elite soldier of Hell.
  • Iratu - Buwaro's eldest brother, a giant earth Demon and high-ranking soldier of Hell, perpetually drunk when off duty.
  • Heathcliff "Cliff" Sinclair - A wandering peddler who travels Medius with his family. A bit sour and brusque but really a nice guy.
  • Miranda Sinclair - Cliff's wife. Kindly, motherly, and currently expecting a baby.
  • Samantha "Sammy" Kailum - Cliff and Miranda's niece. Sweet, bright, and headstrong.
  • Duster - A fairy and an old family friend of the Sinclairs. Laid-back and has a thing for the ladies.
  • Darius Elexion - An angel who raised Iratu, Sakido, and Buwaro as their adoptive father 15 years ago. Currently standing in for Death.
  • Crunky - A Canon Immigrant Team Pet gold-colored wright wyvern who speaks entirely with two sounds: "Meep!" and "Mah!" Much rounder than your standard wyvern.

Tropes used include:

  Rhea: What else is in here? "The Bloody Shovel of Regret," " Ms. Cow and the Ice Cream Shop Secret," "The Ice-Covered Doll," "Revenge of the Fairy Queen"...

  • Gale Force Sound: Iratu shows Buwaro and Rhea just how roaring is done.
  • The Glomp: Buwaro has a knack for this.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Demons when angry - or they just want to improve their night vision.
  • God Job: Darius taking the place of Death.
  • God's Hands Are Tied: Death, the most active god around, is surprisingly limited. For example his own creation can disobey and mock him. Ouch.
    • Justified, since Darius (the current Death) didn't create Cerberus and therefore Cerberus feels no obligation to obey him.
  • The Gods Must Be Lazy: Despite being one of the divine crowd, Death gets rather lame territory compared to Gaia (heaven) and Syndel (hell), just getting himself purgatory and judgment. Not to mention that given the nastiness of divine politics, his hands are tied in regards to the other gods. There is also no information on the other gods doing anything at all recently.
    • It eventually became known that Death has been missing for 15 years, having been replaced by Darius, and making him the same.
  • Good Is Not Nice: He may be gruff, cynical, and less than friendly to most, but Heathcliff Sinclair only does what he thinks is right.
    • For that matter, what we've seen of angel society suggests that it's hyper-conformist and at least borderline fascist, but they canonically tend toward good, and the society seems to be constructed in this manner specifically to keep the tending-toward-evil demons in check.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: Angels have their usual deal, Demons get all varieties of feathery and batlike, Fairies - butterfly wings.
  • Gratuitous English: Duster, but it's justified as Fairies generally speak their own language.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: The reason for Sakido and Iratu's initial reactions to Buwaro joining their 'family', especially Sakido. So much so that it led to Sakido tearing off part of Buwaro's ear, and guilt from their behavior probably drives both demons' closeness with Buwaro earlier in the strip.
  • Grey and Gray Morality: The war between heaven and hell. The angels are implied to be A Lighter Shade of Gray, as many of the demons have violent tendencies (and some are tasked with torturing souls in hell). However, not all demons are evil and most of them at least have redeeming qualities, while some of the Angels are merciless Knight Templars. Darius notes that both sides occasionally kill children of the other side.
  • Half-Identical Twins: Kieri and her brother, Kazai.
  • Have You Seen My God?: Mother Gaia and Father Syndel are missing, the real Death hasn't been seen either since he went looking for them 15 years ago.
  • Heroic Bystander: Subverted not once, but twice with Kieri.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Buwaro. He got better, thanks to only almost dying.
  • He Was Right There All Along: Darius

 Kieri: Wow. Darius sure wasn't fond of my aunt. "A fat hussy always moving in on my man"?

 Rhea: Ouch.

Buwaro: Reminds me of the time I got Thadius stuck in my nose...

  1. For added stupidity, Lazuli and Talus were the ones who put the power-restricting collar on Kieri in the first place.
