Main Cast


This article or section needs expansion.

The Penny Dreadful fandom is still relatively new and growing fast. The monster mash up nature of the show lends itself well to fandom imagination.

Popular pairings include Ethan Chandler with either Dorian Gray or Victor Frankenstein. Ethan and Dorian canonically slept together, though both were also involved with women at the time. Frankenstein is canonically a virgin, and is sometimes interpreted as asexual.

The canonical het pairing Ethan/Brona is also popular, and Vanessa/Mina is a somewhat common femslash pairing.
