"When life gives you lemons, extract the juice and use it to draw a treasure map in invisible ink. That really works! Seriously!" —Dipper on lemons
Smart and conventional, Dipper Pines can't wait to leave adolescence in the rear view mirror. A born adventurer at heart, Dipper can't sit still, and is always looking for the next riddle to solve. His scrupulous attention to detail comes in handy when he is off figuring out the mystery of the day, but sometimes his overzealousness leaves others questioning his credibility. He is wise beyond his years, and his refusal to sit still when there are puzzles to be solved leaves him restless in everyday situations. (Read more...)

"When life gives you lemons, draw faces on those lemons and wrap them in a blanket. Ta-daaa! Now you have Lemon babies." —Mabel on lemons
Mabel Pines is a buoyant and energetic optimist who skips through life with a braces-filled smile and an assortment of extremely colorful knit sweaters. It is her outgoing personality and fearless curiosity that comes in handy when Dipper needs help solving a mystery, even if she isn't always aware of it. Mabel lives in a world of pre-teen novels, and her fixation on finding her one true love occasionally lands her in sticky situations which ultimately require her brother's help. Still, despite the weirdness in Gravity Falls, Mabel is always a "glass half full" kind of girl. (Read more...)

Pacifica Northwest is the most popular girl in Gravity Falls, Oregon. She is the great-great-granddaughter of the supposed founder of Gravity Falls, Nathaniel Northwest. However, he is soon revealed to be a fraud. Pacifica first appears in Double Dipper, where she competes with Mabel for the title of Party Queen at the Mystery Shack party. The crowd clearly favors Mabel; however, she is able to bribe and threaten her way to the top. She then leaves with a large part of the crowd to go to the after-party on her parents' boat.
In Irrational Treasure, she makes a speech for Pioneer Day, and insults Mabel for her silliness. She taunts Grunkle Stan when he's put in the stockade. She is later informed by Dipper that her great-great-grandfather, supposedly the founder of Gravity Falls, was a fraud.

Waddles is Mabel's pet pig. She won him at the Mystery Fair in "The Time Traveler's Pig. Waddles' first appearance is with Mabel in the opening credits, where Mabel is hugging him. His official series debut is in "The Time Traveler's Pig", where Mabel wins him in a "Guess the Critter's Weight" game. She looked for a suitable pig when one said something that is either "Mabel" or "Doorbell." The pig, originally named "15-Poundie", was renamed Waddles (because he waddles when he walks). The bond between Mabel and Waddles is strengthened each time the twins travel through time, resulting in her spiraling into depression when she loses him to Pacifica Northwest in the only successful Dipper timeline. After realizing how much Waddles means to her, Dipper goes back in time and sacrifices his chance with Wendy to allow Mabel to re-win Waddles. To show her appreciation, Mabel sends Waddles to retrieve the caramel apple Robbie is sharing with his new girlfriend, Wendy.(Read more...)
