|Thomas is your average graphic designer just trying to make his way in the world as a part-time freelancer and full-time minimum wage earner on his way to opening his own design studio.||Gary is an analytical thinker that acts with logic and reasoning until he steps into the virtual arena of online gaming.
He makes his living as a high school history teacher while chasing his dream of creating music for video games.
|Michele is a travel agent at Role the World Travel, the first and only role playing travel agency, and spends much of her free time playing video games that do not connect in any way to the internet.
Michele is also a part-time graphic designer and owner of Hugo the Cat and Harley D. Og.
|Robot Friday||Hugo the Cat||Harley D. Og|
|Robot Friday is an alarm clock robot that houses the souls of two ancient Chinese warriors.
Thomas received Robot Friday in barter while freelancing in college. Robot Friday is fond of contemporary soft rock and gets cranky when dialed to anything else.
He’s currently contemplating his life (or lack thereof).
|Hugo is Michele’s pet cat. Gullible and dull witted at times, Hugo does not like to be filmed or exhibited on the internet.
Hugo trusts his house mate, Harley, a little too much and is often the butt of his pranks and dry wit.
He is also not fond of clothing accessories.
|Michele brought Harley home so that Hugo would have an animal friend. Harley is a bit arrogant, cocky and likes to make Hugo the butt of his jokes.
Michele dresses Harley in clothing accessories from time to time, which he adores.
Hugo and Harley can only understand each other when they speak and they are completely clueless as to what the humans are saying most of the time.
|Karen is the owner and creator of the Chocolate Bean hot chocolate brand. She currently owns and runs one of the brand’s hot cocoa stores in town.
Formally trained as a graphic designer, she painted a series of oil paintings that she licenses for use to hang in the lobbies of large corporations and hotels.
Karen is very smart, witty, charming and flirty.
|Jeff is a college friend of Gary’s and his fraternity brother. When Jeff is not found at the local pub he is often online playing any number of console games. Jeff knows just about everyone in town. He is very sociable, quick witted with a dry humor. He looks down on MMORPGs.||Leonard is a regular at Karen’s Chocolate Bean hot cocoa store. He loves to spin yarns about “the good ol’ days” and insult virtually everyone younger than him. Leonard is very grumpy, completely politically incorrect and very opinionated. If he had a bucket of rocks he would most assuredly throw them at you.|
