    Main characters 

Katherine "Kate" Beckett

The protagonist of the comic. She is the daughter of Herman and sister of Thurman. A guitar player and somewhat of a cynical everyman, she constantly finds herself in zany situations.

Penelope “Penny” O’Brien

Kate's long time BFF. Although intelligent, she constantly drinks, has trouble finding her direction in life, and has a strained relationship with her mother. Oh, and she's the only character who's aware that her entire existence is a webcomic. If only everyone else would listen...

Herman Beckett

Kate and Thurman's dad. A billionaire and former baseball superstar, you'd think Herman would have it made. Too bad he's an idiot. Think a nicer, skinny version of Homer Simpson.

  • Idiot Houdini
  • Idiot Savant: For all of his faults, he's an incredible baseball player.
  • Fiction500: According to the comic's cast page, his fortune surpasses the GDP of Uruguay. Other sports stars may be able to rake in millions with endorsement deals, but Herman gets a yacht filled with gold coins (a literal boatload of money) to start a podcast.
