The Parasol Protectorate is a secret organization Alexia makes up in order to enlist Ivy Tunstell's help in information-gathering. Not to be confused with the Parasol Protectorate Series.
- Ivy Tunstell—"Puff Bonnet"
- Alexia Maccon—"Ruffled Parasol"
- Biffy—"Wingtip Spectator"
- Conall Maccon—"Crinkled Cravat"
- Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama—"Hot Cross Bun"
- Primrose Tunstell—"The Ledger"
"I shield in the name of fashion. I accessorize for one and all. Pursuit of truth is my passion. This I vow by the great parasol."
The person taking the oath spins the parasol three times and says the oath. They then pick the parasol up and raise it open to the ceiling. The oath is then sealed in blood with the words, "May the blood of the soulless keep your own soul safe."
- Lord Akeldama—"Golden Rod"
- Sophronia Angelina Temminnick— "Wicker Chicken" (Her true identity is unknown by her contacts.)
- Alexia made the entire organization, oath, and ritual up to gain Ivy's help, but it gained members and became genuine over time.
