|~ Vriska Serket|
Vriska Serket was a minor antagonist in Andrew Hussie's webcomic Homestuck. She comes from an alien race called the trolls and was a temporary secondary antagonist along side The Condesce, Gamzee Makara, and Eridan Ampora. Both pre and post Act 6-retcon, she underwent a redemption arc and became an ally to the humans. She briefly had romantic feelings for John Egbert in Act 5 and her current fate is unknown.
Act 5 / Early Life
Vriska makes her first appearance in Act 5, with no prior pesterlogs with the humans in previous acts, unlike the other trolls. Vriska arrived on Alternia with the other 11 trolls in an unknown year. She was adopted, as is expected on said planet, by a Lusus, a specific sort of animal-guardian. Vriska's lusus was a spider (a.k.a Spidermom as mentioned in narration), who's' appetite for flesh led Vriska to hunt other trolls from a very young age. This was accomplished via rounds of FLARP, a popular live action role play game (What the F stands for is up for debate). At some point in time, Vriska began a FLARP partnership with Terezi Pyrope, operating under the title of The Scourge Sisters/ Team Scourge to defeat and capture a number of other trolls implied to be significantly high. Those defeated would be fed to her lusus, but she did not take pleasure in this. During this period, she also FLARPed against Eridan Ampora, acting as her Kismesis, and came into posession of one of Doc Scratch's cue balls. On an exploration with Eridan, she also located and gained the magical dice set of the Flourite Octet.
A few sweeps (3.2 years per sweep) before the beginning of Act 5, Team Scourge challenged Team Charge, composed of Aradia Megido and Tavros Nitram, to a game. While Terezi and Aradia faced off and were watched by Doc Scratch, Vriska cornered Tavros with several high-level monsters and refused to allow him to back out, later forcing him off a cliff with her mind-control abilities and paralyzing him as a result. Aradia, despite plees from Terezi not to, retaliated to this sometime later by summoning spirits of Vriska's past victims to haunt her. Pushed by this and the persistant egging-on of Doc Scratch, Vriska used her mind-control once again to possess Sollux Captor, luring Aradia out and blasting her to death with Sollux's own psychic abilities. In yet another act of revenge, Terezi alerted Doc Scratch that Vriska was in possession of one of his powerful prediction cue balls. Enraged, Scratch proceeded to detonate the ball as Vriska held it, causing her to lose both her left eye and it's Vision 8-Fold alongside her arm. Acting out of hurt and fury, Vriska then performed a complex series of mind-posessions, possessing Tavros, then Terezi's dragon lusus, who in turn commanded Terezi to walk outside mid-day and stare directly into the dangerously-hot Alternian sun. Ultimately, Terezi was blinded, but refused to further continue the cycle of revenge by attacking Vriska again. The two cut off communication between them and Vriska turned to Magic 8-Balls as an alternative to the magic cue ball she'd lost, but began breaking them as an addiction when turning frustrated to their vague replies.
Later on, in her process of getting to the Medium, her lusus was gravely injured in a rock slide, and she used her Flourite Octet to summon a guillotine and perform a mercy kill, putting her out of her misery. She would later on admit that she felt some sort of relief at being free of her abusive lusus.
Act 5 Act 2
After fighting lots of mobs Vriska and Tavros finally made it to Vriska's quest bed. When Vriska was about to tell Tavros the final steps for her to become a God Tier they were interrupted by Aradia who then beat Vriska mercilessly. After Aradia was finished with the beating the went away. Tavros had to then carry Vriska to her quest bed. Vriska told Tavros that the last steps were to kill her. Tavros was upset by this and decided to blow her up intead of killing her with his bear hands. After Vriska was killed by the explosion she became a godtier.
Vriska then met up with Tavros again and revealed her betrayal to him by teasing him with his legs. Tavros gets angry and attempts to kill Vriska but Vriska grabs Tavros's weapon and stabbed Tavros with it before knocking Tavros off a cliff. Vriska later met with two other murderous members of the group. Before they can go into deadly combat Kanaya Maryam came and punched Vriska after dealing with Gamzee and before she dealt with Eridan. Vriska later tolled Courtyard Doll that if he got Rose's journal he would be able to rise Jack Noir to power. Courtyard Doll told Draconian Dignitary about this and Dignitary was able to rise Jack to power using Vriska's advise. After Vriksa was suspected of killing Feferi, Vriska was challenged by Terezi. They made a coin deal were Vriska picked heads and Terezi picked tails. The coin landed on heads and Vriska won the bet. Vriska then fought Jack Noir and was defeated by him. When she woke up she was stabbed and killed by Terezi.
Act 6 Act 4After Hussie's death Hussie appeared in another dream bubble that wasn't destroyed by Lord English. Hussie asked Ghost Vriska if she wanted to marry him. When Ghost Vriska saw Hussie's ring she was eager to get it from him sense she knew the ring contained lots of power once you put it on. John then found the ring and took before Ghost Vriska (at the time John did not see Ghost Vriska). Ghost Tavros then came to John and told him to give him the ring before Ghost Vriska steals it. When Ghost Vriska found the two she pretended to act innocent to the two.
Act 6 Act 5 Act 1
While John was in a dream bubble Ghost Vriska was on a ship with some of her other Ghost "friends". Her Ghost friends told John Ghost Vriska's true nature. Ghost Vriska was trying to find a magical treasure that was supposed to help them defeat Lord English. After Ghost Aranea told the crew the story of Caliborn and The Condesce's ring Ghost Vriska was became even more eager to find the ring. John told Ghost Vriska that he had the ring and John told Ghost Vriska that he did not want to give the ring to someone dangerous. Ghost Vriska then redeemed herself after hearing this.

Vriska asks John to give her the ring but John refused because was afraid of giving it so someone dangerous. This made Vriska feel heartbroken, but she still went on with the mission.
