Characters / Maggot Boy

    open/close all folders 

     Awares 
  • All Deaths Final: Not for these guys!
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Davey and Chainey.
  • I Am A Humanitarian: All Zombies by default.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: There are two types: the typical Romero zombies (called 'Mindless') and the zombies that can think (called 'Awares').
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars
    • Scars Are Forever: Let's see:
      • Chainey has a scar on his left cheek and hand. Also a big gash at the back of his skull.
      • Davey has a few on his face, as well as a large Y-shaped one which he received at the hands of Marianne.
      • Owen: LOTS! Several on both his hands (looks like he's wearing hobo gloves. He's not), one around his neck, and one across his cheekbones. It's been suggested that these are self-inflicted . As of Chapter 10: Avalanche, he's probably got more now thanks to Davey.

Anthony Michael Chainey

The main protagonist of the story, Chainey is a tall, narcoleptic, Aware with amnesia.

Jeremiah David Jones

Self-proclaimed Hero called... Maggot Boy.

The main antagonist of the story, and appears to have some history with Chainey.

     Palmer Institute Employees 

Samatha Hyde

A young but talented Necromancer working at the Palmer Institute. Her job is to observe the resident Awares.

Lazaro Palmer

A bitter but powerful Necromancer who saved Sovereign city, now heads the Palmer Institute for Undead Studies.
  • The Ace: Saved Sov. City - and to some extent the world - from becoming Zombiechow.
  • Younger Than They Look: Due to casting a zombie-destroying shield over a whole city for several days.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Chainey about Zombies and feeding.
  • Jerkass: For the most part!
    • Jerkass Has a Point: He might be an ass, but he has good intuition in how to handle most situations. This doesn't stick later on.
  • Big Secret: Keeps his infected daughter Claire hidden in the Institute.
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: As the chapters progress he has become more willing to take risks and allienate his allies.
  • The Unfettered: Will go to any lengths, be it losing his sanity or life, to find a cure for his daughter.

Noah/Li Xiang Fei

Lazaro's right-hand man. His life currently revolves around his pregnant wife and the shenanigans at the Palmer Institute.

Marianne Sutton

A (Ex-)surgeon(?) that recently got reinstated to capture Owen.
  • Asexual: By Word of God
  • The Ace: Besides the obvious pun, is said to be one of the best surgeons of the Palmer Institute.
  • Cute and Psycho: How most characters and fans see her.
  • Knight Templar Mad Scientist: She see nothing wrong with dissecting an aware (while they're fully conscious).
  • Terms of Endangerment: Davey meets the doctor who dissected him when he was freshly undead. She calls him "sweetheart" and says "I missed you terribly". Davey is less than civil.
    • Refers to Owen as "Cupcake" during their first meeting after shooting him in the arm, considering she wants to continue her experiments on him...
     Cult Members 

In General

  • Cult: Duh. They worship the minor Voodoo loa/deity Boli Shah.
  • Self-Harm: Members do this to themselves as an initiation

Damien Carville

The cult's leader. Interested in Sam, to Davey's chagrin.
  • Affably Evil: Despite being in charge of a self-mutilating, zombie-worshipping cult, it seems that he just wants to date Sam in peace.
  • The Dragon: For someone who may be an even bigger threat than Owen, no less!
  • Jerkass: Is rude to Davey, is keeping his true identity from Sam (although both actions are somewhat justifiable) and, in chapter 12, kills a couple of his fellow Cult members and purposefully misgenders Owen
    • Jerkass Has a Point: Although his comments to Davey are harsh, he is right about Davey being against him for personal reasons.
