The Damn, Dirty Apes (the Sunday Night Group):
The Good Example (the Friday Night Group):
Knuckles – The Enforcer. The primary muscle of the group, this former pugilist has mellowed some in recent years, but has a huge number of amusing tales that begin with “So I was bored one day…” Easygoing and generally up for anything, including petty crime, in the name of more stories to tell. Newly inducted into the Friday game.
The Imperial Remnants (everyone else):
Lunchbox - The Swarmlord. A relative newbie who knows just enough to get into trouble. Originally a work-related acquaintance finally given his shot at the table, still boggled slightly by the presence of a group who actually pay attention to the "RP" part of "RPG," but quickly learning the benefits. Still has a lot to learn, but learning it quickly.
MCW - Intensity. A long veteran of the miniature battlefield still coming to grips with the latest flavor of the week, but a savvy competitor nonetheless. Imposing but surprisingly soft-spoken, keenly aware of his status as "singlehandedly keeping the store in profit." A large part of the reason the mini wargaming wall is expanding rapidly.
Padawan - Young Gun. Only in his freshman year of high school and with two national painting competition golds under his belt already, Padawan is poised to someday take over Delmont's regime in what will doubtless be a spectacular coup. The Lad's Got Talent.
Maab - The Crazy Catgirl. Straylight's wife and usual accomplice. The primary source of the wacky antics that abound in their household and instigator of everything that happens when Knuckles isn't around. Typically elicits a "how the...?" reaction when compared to Straylight himself and how their relationship manages to stay afloat.
Sloughter - Not a Typo. A particularly eclectic example of an English Major, largely content with surviving the antics of the rest of the household. Master of well-timed terrible puns and fan in equal parts of wordplay and stage magic. Recently found a job that required exactly the esoteric skill set he possesses.
Bird - Instability Amidst Chaos. Sloughter's wife who unlike Maab and Straylight himself, makes perfect sense when stacked up against her husband. Capable of firing back against Sloughter's pun broadsides but still tangling with the finer details of Straylight-wrangling. Most dependable of the lot.
Cow - Wingman. A high-energy closed system packed into eighty pounds of spunky Chinese tomboy, Cow was Straylight's best friend through high school and his abortive first attempt at college. Both agreed that they get along too well to ever be romantically involved with one another, and exhibit an easy familiarity that makes other people jealous. One of the few people on Stray's "kill or die for" list.

Crow - Dramatic Personae. Formerly of The Gamers, pulled an impressive vanishing act some months ago when he spur-of-the-moment moved to the east coast to be with the lastest in a long line of "one true love" situations. Left a particularly beloved campaign hanging in midair in the process. Formerly the butt-monkey of the group though no fault of his own. Hardcore "thespian" roleplayer.
Crispy - Kilt-Wearing Space Puppy. Straylight's Sith Apprentice until the US Navy decided they wanted him running a nuclear reactor that could power California for a decade. The two have drifted apart somewhat in the interim time, but are still planning to invite each other to their weddings.
Aiwen - Ancient History. Straylight's ex whom he isn't entirely sure if he's on good terms with or not. He halfheartedly attempts to track her down every now and then when he's bored and with nothing better do to, but by and large their involvement in each other's lives is over. Responsible for many of Stray's beliefs about relationships and taking sides.
Dani - [no data available]
Stagecreation – Blinking Outline. Though not actually MIA, has suddenly and effectively decided to remove himself from the circumstances of the Friday Night game. Thanks to this, Knuckles has been inducted in his place.
Griff – The
