Characters / Phule's Company

The Omega Mob (Phule's Company):

In general:
Omega Company, or "Phule's Company" as the media nicknamed it, used to be a dumping ground for all the legionnaires who didn't fit into regular units, were too bad or too undisciplined. This has changed with the arrival of Captain Jester, or Willard Phule. He decided to turn the unit into the best there is - and succeeded.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: They start like this - Omega Company is the one where all the misfits are sent.
  • Reassigned to Antarctica: Until Phule's arrival they were stationed at Hasting's Planet of mud and bogs, doing nothing except guarding a swamp - one day a week.
  • We ARE Struggling Together: There are moments when they just can't stand each other...
  • Squad Nickname: Omega Mob or Phule's Company, instead of Omega Company.
  • Badass Crew: After Phule's revolution they're widely regarded as the best Legion has.
  • Mildly Military: While they do wear uniforms and train, the chain of command is followed very loosely and things that would get you sacked in any Real Life military get a pass in the Mob.
  • Military Maverick: A whole company of them.

Captain Jester, A.K.A. Willard Phule
Commander of Omega Mob and heir to Phule-Proof Munitions. He got transferred to Omega Company because he strafed a peace conference and his connectionsnote  kept the Legion from outright sacking him. He then proceeded to turn the Mob into a well-oiled, working machine.
  • A Father to His Men: It's lampshaded as the primary difference between him and other Legion commanders - he genuinely cares for his people.
  • Determinator: He often goes long periods without any sleep.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: The Mob has some state-of-the-art equipment nobody else has, because Phule pays for it.
  • Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: When C.H. offers him a partnership in an illegal enterprise, he declines. He also feels that using money to overcome troubles is somewhat beneath him.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: Subverted. He sometimes looks like that to others, spending money with apparently no reward, but he does this because he can. He made all that money on fantastic business deals and has a great sense for stocks.
  • Fiction500: He and his father are listed as some of the richest people in the Federation.
  • Non-Idle Rich: He's rich enough to live in luxury for the rest of his life - instead, he joined the Legion.
  • Uncle Pennybags: Despite being absurdly rich, he's quite fun to be around.

Sgt. Brandy
The Mob's senior sergeant, she started as deadpan snarker and cynic, but turned into one of Phule's supporters.
  • Boobs of Steel: She's described as being "big everywhere".
  • Sergeant Rock: She's like this in reality, but often overplays it to get better results.
  • The Cynic: She starts like this, but slowly - and surprisingly - turns into the company's lead optimist.
  • Silly Rabbit, Cynicism Is for Losers!: One of the lead factors in company's rise is her change of mind.
  • Hope Is Scary: Underplayed, but at the beginning she prefers not to believe anything good can happen to the Mob.

Rose/Violet/Mother
The Company's communication officer, she has a terrible stutter anytime when she has to talk face to face with anybody.
  • Hidden Depths: Believe it or not, but she was a radio DJ before joining.
  • Shrinking Violet: Her company nickname - Violet - lampshades this: before she sat in front of the com console, she didn't say more than six words, as one of the characters puts it.
  • Voice with an Internet Connection: She can access every legionnaire's wrist com and pinpoint their location, meaning she usually knows whatever they need.
  • Mission Control: She's unable to work as anybody else.
  • Speech Impediment: When she talks with somebody face to face, her stutter is so strong she's practically unintelligible.

Chocolate Harry
Chocolate Harry, or C.H. for short, is the company's supply officer and ex biker.

Tusk-Anini
One of mob's very few aliens, he's a Volton - a giant, warthog-like creature.

Super Gnat
The shortest female member of the Omega Mob, with an equally short fuse.
