Endearing and simple minded, Simon's hammy and chaotic personality make him a perfect Foil to Lewis. A red oni and a Man of a Thousand Voices, he often acts quite silly and childish. His unpredictable nature never ceases to keep his fans laughing.
Adorkable: Guaranteed to be this whenever he shows up on camera: See day one of their Gamescom coverage for many examples.
Bad Boss: In Tekkit and some of the Minecraft spinoffs. This actually causes Lewis to leave Honeydew Inc in episode 13. In Episode 14, Sjin immediately gets fired from Sips Co and joins them, but quits pretty much immediately when Simon keeps beating him with a stick.
Fat Bastard: He admits this knowingly, though as shown by the IRL videos it's more part of a persona he puts on.
The Gadfly: Especially when TotalBiscuit's nearby. For every time he's being incompetent in Magicka, there's another time it's intentional. TB tries to one-up him, though...he also shows elements of this towards TB in Trine 2.
The Hyena: The guy loves to laugh, and it's often glorious and very contagious.
It Amused Me: The reason he often hits Lewis, makes up zany stories for The YoGPoD, Does his crazy expressions, and about 20% of everything he does.
Jerkass: Acts like this to Lewis sometimes, but it's all in good fun and just part of his persona.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold - Has his moments, such as sticking close to Grizwald to protect him during the Legend of Verigan livestream and reassuring Knight Peculier of his ability to save the world. Then there's his reaction to Peculier's death...
It's been said that Simon provides most of the comedy while Lewis does all of the actual work. Others say that Lewis' calm personality make their videos more entertaining by balancing out Simon's erratic nature. The blue to Simon's red, Lewis is by far the more sensible and cautious of the two.
The Chessmaster: In Civilization 5. Everyone else just dances on his fingertips.
Comically Missing the Point: Occasionally, though usually not to a large extent. For example, during the Tekkit playthrough, Simon asks why Lewis has two stone axes. Lewis replies by saying he doesn't; he has two iron axes.
Curb-Stomp Battle: After investing enough points in technology in Civilization 5: Brave New World, he nukes Rythian which cripples him even further, starts attacking the already failing Duncan, begins to destroy Sjin and starts giving Sips a hard time. Even if Sips managed to delay him, Lewis was the obvious victor of the game.
Gone Horribly Wrong: His effort to use the Stargate Portal in Yoglabs get many staff members killed, and he almost gets killed along with Herp and Simon. He ends up destroying the portal to stop the same thing happening again.
Grammar Nazi: Towards Minecraft map writers. Also referred to as Grammar Hitler and Grandma Hitler by Simon.
The Hyena: There are occasions where he starts crying from laughter.
Idiot Hero: While not as bad as Simon, he does have his moments.
Mad Scientist: Dabbles in this during his Mod Spotlight of the Apothecarium and Uranium mods... which he installed and showcased in the same world. Picture Lewis running away from a giant slime and a mutant slime he created by fleeing to Verigan's Hold, with nuclear reactors held inside, by going through a giant hole blown open by a nuclear explosion. Right after he had thrown a bunch of potions at some friendly dogs that belonged to someone else and set them on fire. Lampshaded by Simon.
Badass: Responsible for the death of no less than 7 other players during the first round of Crown Conquest.
Chastity Couple: Lewis and Hannah almost never show any signs of being in a relationship and never even reference having any kind of physical romance. The only way most people remember that they are even dating is when it is specifically mentioned by other people.
Plus, during one YoGPoD, Simon jokingly talks about having a secret "activity" with Hannah and Lewis reacts with mild jealousy.
In her YogSims series, she makes a point of marking Sim!Hannah and Sim!Lewis as boyfriend and girlfriend "just to make sure nobody gets any funny ideas".
Cuteness Proximity: She is normally reasonably logical, but when she displays the cats in Mo' Creatures, she becomes a female Simon. When one of them gives birth to kittens, she is absolutely incoherent.
Wimp Fight: In a video where Simon and Hannah are trying out Total Miner, Hannah comes across a Giant Spider in an underground cavern, and she constantly tries to attack it with her pickaxe while she's way too far to actually hit anything. Even when she gets up close enough that the spider takes up the entire game screen, she still can't attack it and is too terrified to get closer to see if the pickaxe can even be used to attack spiders.
Like Sips above, he has his own page. Joined the Yogscast in August 2012, but had a channel of his own before joining.
Duncan Jones (Lalna)
One of the more prominent members of the Yogscast, and appears more frequently in videos in the main channel. He's better known as the artist behind the Yogscast crew, designing their Youtube page as well as directing most of the Shadow of Israphel's art design. Plays Fumblemore in the Shadow of Israphel series.Collaborates frequently with Hannah, and has several Let's Play series with her: Resident Evil 6, LEGO Batman 2, and Video Game/Inversion.
The Ace: Mentioned several times as being pro at every game he plays, and to be fair it's generally shown quite well.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: In the Minecraft "Terminator" minigame, his way of protecting the levers from the survivors was to simply go up to the last lever and guard it, that way ensuring that the survivors would be forced to put themselves in harm's way and that he wouldn't be wasting time in hunting them down, having murdered a few of them already. It worked, and he won.
Epic Fail: In Civilization V, he tried betraying Rythian by moving all his units into Rythian's borders and then turning on him... which would have been a sound plan, except for the fact that his units were ridiculously weak compared to Rythian's Gatling Good. In fact, his performance throughout the whole game wasn't great, owing to the fact that he was Venice and thus needed to get moving quickly, something he failed to do, which left him in last place.
Evil Is Petty: Part of his persona in Civilization V. He starts razing Rythian's buildings when it becomes apparent that his own betrayal failed horribly.
Evil Laugh: As part of his Mad Scientist persona, he often breaks into a giggle. As the "Terminator", he ended up doing a Jabba the Hutt style one, then changed it to Santa Claus.
Genius Ditz: Initially was more genius than ditz, thanks to his experience with Tekkit, but as time goes on the ditzy side starts overshadowing the genius.
The Hyena: On occasion, Duncan will find himself unable to stop laughing.
Kleptomaniac Hero: Probably the only member of the Yogscast who isn't. In his Resident Evil 5Let's Play with Hannah, he's more interested in pushing forward with the story rather than hunting for loot, as Hannah does.
Mad Scientist: Invoked a few times in his various playthroughs of Minecraft mods.
A case of this also happened in their Civilization V playthrough. When it became apparent that his betrayal of Rythian had ended badly, he decided to simply raze his buildings, causing more trouble for Rythian than his attempt at outright war.
Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: During the first part of his team's Cluster Chunk challenge he becomes mesmerised by the moving textures on a netherrack and soulsand block. To the point that he actually stops what he's doing to stare at them and starts making 'Wubwub' noises.
Butt Monkey: At the end of their Civilisation V runthrough, he becomes this, as Duncan is razing his lands after failing to betray him, Sjin starts annoying him, Sips pays Duncan to betray him in the first place, and Lewis goes out of his way to nuke him instead of a more high-priority target. All while Sjin starts singing how "I love burning Swedes".
In the start of series 4, he loses in the first episode.
Character Development: Has gone through a fair bit of this during his Tekkit series. His original vengance quest was interrupted early on by Zoeya and her antics, but he continued to plot against Sjin and Duncan in spite of the occasional thought that maybe they weren't as guilty as he believed (it didn't help that they kept doing things which proved him right). He became dangerously destructive after Zoeya left, but at the beginning of Blackrock Chronicle - Rising bartered a truce with Duncan after losing Blackrock Castle, and almost Zoeya, acknowledging that a continued feud would only lead the world to ruin all over again.
Chekhov's Gunman: During Duncan and Sjin's Tekkit War, he can be seen in the chat lamenting the loss of his house and cursing Sjin and Duncan. When he starts his own Tekkit series, vengeance on them becomes his primary motivation.
The Dog Bites Back: In Civilization V. He betrays Duncan and Sjin for utterly razing Malmo to the ground in the previous playthrough, denying them the win and giving Lewis yet another victory. Fittingly enough, the episode is titled "Malmo Remembers".
Green-Eyed Epiphany: After being in denial about missing Zoey, he realizes that he loves her shortly after hearing about her friendly visit with his rival, Duncan. The next time they talk, the first thing he does is beg her not to go to him.
The Hyena: Once. During the Terminator minigame video after Turps has been mocking Duncan's decision to use 'Hohoho!' as a laugh you can hear Rythian having a laughter fit in the background.
Sir Swears-a-Lot: Normally Rythian swears around as much as the others, but towards the end of the Civilization V Let's Play, he starts swearing a lot, as he's very annoyed. See the spoiler for Butt Monkey.
Troll: Civilization V gives him his moments. At the end of Season 3, he decides to turn on Duncan and Sjin for razing his main city in Season 2, Malmo, to the ground, even though Lewis nuked it afterwards (the decisive nail in the coffin). He says his reasons are doing this are because Duncan and Sjin annoyed him, which is true.
Creator of Verigan's Hold in the Shadow of Israphel series and the Crown Conquest map. He collaborates frequently with Sips, and has a "rivalry" with Duncan that he also shares with Sips.Played Granny Bacon, Madame Nubescu, and Spacker in Shadow of Israphel, according to his Tumblr.
Affably Evil: Part of his Tekkit persona (he and Rythian actually start bouncing jokes back and forth during their climactic showdown), whereas in real life you can drop the "evil" part.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite getting frequently pushed around, he keeps Sips Co. running and through his manipulation of Sips is secretly the true CEO, being considered more of a threat than his boss by Zoey and Rythian. He's also a generally good gamer in spite of his eccentric mannerisms.
Heel Face Door Slam: From Honeydew's perspective. He gets fired from Sips Co in Episode 14 of Tekkit and tries joining Honeydew and Lalna. Unfortunately, Simon keeps beating him with a stick and calls him the worst employee ever. He then leaves, with Honeydew then firing him. Later on, he does reform for real.
Heroic Comedic Sociopath: His character, Orange, in the Spacemen series. He blows up the ship that he and Sips' character, Blue, get rescued in, just so that their friendship can be er, rekindled. He mentions blowing up several ships before.
Motor Mouth: God, the guy can spew out information fast.
One-Man Army: In "Race for the Wool" (the one where he's with Lewis, Duncan and Sips), he grabs a bow and starts racking up kills like there's no tomorrow.
The Smart Guy: Is this to Sips as Lalna usually is to Lewis and Simon.
Obfuscating Stupidity: He seems to dumb himself down to certain levels depending on which series it is. His intelligence is pretty obvious in his Let's Builds and Feed the World, but in any video with Sips (presumably because those videos are more about the comedy) he comes off as better at stuff than Sips, but not especially smart. When he's in Lewis, Simon, and Duncan's series, he barely seems competent.
Stripperiffic: His old Minecraft skin, which was him in a mankini and nothing else.
Too Dumb to Live: He basically destroyed their Voltz server by detonating a red matter bomb underneath their base, while trying to mine for copper, though to be fair he had no idea what it was at first. Then they decided to find the wormhole after the server has been fixed, only stopping because the ocean prevents them from finding the chunk it's in. Their solution to this? Try building yet another red matter bomb, because that worked so well the first time.
Took a Level in Badass: In his video of Haunt, he displays no signs of fear like he did in any of the previous horror games he played, instead sounding annoyed at the monster. There are a couple of moments where he actually charges at the monster!
His learning of the art of Thaumcraft is gradually developing into this, too.
A member of the Yogscast who collaborates frequently with the others, usually Rythian. Gained her own YouTube channel in October 2012.
Action Girl: Zoey's a competent player after Rythian teaches her in the mystic arts.
Adorkable: Comes off this way a bit, particularly around Rythian.
Bad Boss: Simon jokes about her demanding tribute as Guild Leader from the members of their Guild Wars 2 guild.
Bunny-Ears Lawyer: In Tekkit she regularly has conversations with mushrooms and natters on about the complex politics and factions of mushroom society, but is also a fantastic decorator/designer and computer programmer.
Cloud Cuckoolander: As a cursory glance at his youtube page will reveal, he seems a bit nutty.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: In Voltz, he used two missiles to attack Lewis and co, leaving a gap between the two to force them to spend longer repairing. Then he promptly ripped them to shreds with a ray gun, and when they tried entering his base, after dealing with the sheer amount of auto-turrets, they triggered a booby trap designed to destroy his base, deny them anything valuable and take them down in the process. It didn't quite work owing to pure luck, but it's still brilliantly executed.
Hidden Villain: Seems to become one in Voltz. Lewis, Duncan and Simon were targeting Sips to begin with, believing him to be the enemy. However instead Ridge was the first to attack, sending two missiles after their base and doing extremely well.
Badass: In spite of his Butt Monkey tendencies, he's a competent gamer, as shown by his Minecraft and Deadpool videos. Special mention, however, must go to him running out of all ammo for his guns, knifing a boss for an hour and winning.
Butt Monkey: His losing streak in the Saturday challenges are quickly making him this.
Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: In Yognews with Kim, he absolutely towers over her, and the intro shows this by showing them supposedly standing at equal height... then zooms out to show she's standing on a massive prop. He towers over pretty much everyone/
The Hyena: When playing Deadpool, he's absolutely laughing his head off, though to be fair that might just be because the game is just that funny.
Promised he'd removed his shirt on a live stream if fans raised £80,000 for charity. It was reason enough for them to do it. They're all asking for him to do it again in 2013, although as the donations are going better he's a bit more reluctant.
A Running Gag when he was away one week for Yognews had multiple people taking his place and jokingly claim that all he said was "I'm handsome", or something along those lines.
Power Trio: The Dream Team with Martyn and Sparkles*.
Sore Loser: Though to be fair, being slapped with a fish isn't exactly a pleasant forfeit.
General Failure: His XCOM playthrough is both marvellous and painful to behold.
Giving the Sword to a Noob: One XCOM video has him give his only psi-armor, an armor that increases a psionic soldier's abilities as well as being the only armor capable of moving the plot to the final mission, to Brain Shooter, a low level sniper with only a basic Psi-attack, as opposed to Domon8, a fully specialized psionic Col. Heavy. Overlaps with General Failure, as he had no idea what caused the game to progress.
Naïve Newcomer: Joins Kim in being one of the last Yogscast members to join the Yogcraft server, although he has played it somewhat more regularly than she did, and so isn't entirely lost.
Kim: You'd think, by now, that bioterrorists and mega shady evil corporations would have learned their lesson. After the T-Virus, the G-Virus, the T and G virus, The C Virus, the X Virus, the Progenitor Virus, the Veronica virus, you'd stop making viruses, you evil science wielding charlatans!
Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: In Yognews with Sam, he absolutely towers over her, and the intro shows this by showing them supposedly standing at equal height... then zooms out to show she's standing on a massive prop.
Naïve Newcomer: On the Feed the Beast Minecraft server due to being the newest member of the team. While everyone else was already up to building complicated factories and tree farms, Kim was still grasping the absolute basics of crafting.
Split Personality: Due to certain coincidences and holes in her backstory, alot of fans believe that she is in fact the very Strawfingers who aledgedly Kimnapped her.
A long-time friend of the group who joined them officially in July 2013
Adventurer Outfit: His Minecraft skin is obviously based off Indiana Jones (he even confirmed this during a Q and A at a gaming festival).
Companion Cube: Wilson in the Castaway and Survival Island playthroughs is this to Dave.
Troll: Trolled Simon and Lewis in the Yoglympics map when he put a button labelled to go up into the Dodgit event that actually threw Simon and Lewis down into a pit. He then proceeded to try and blow up the winner's podium with Lewis and Simon on it after his "special message" on the wall from the map makers (BOOM!), but just missed them and had to flee so Simon wouldn't 'spleef' him to death.
Yohi, Lover of Weed
A guild-mate of Simon and Lewis, he has appeared in several episodes of The YoGPoD.
It's Personal: After Israphel kidnaps Daisy_Duke, and he hears of his father's legacy, he becomes determined to stop him.
In episode 34, he personally kills King_Finbar after he threatens Daisy.
Jack of All Stats: Knight_Peculier. He isn't as good with communication or a sword as Lewis, as skilled of a miner or bowman as Simon, or as smart as Skylord_Lysander, but is competent at all of these.
Killed Off for Real:Dies falling into a load of radioactive... stuff... after his minecart is derailed.
The Load: Old_Peculier when he suffers from the taint.
Meaningful Name: Old_Peculier is old, and a bit quirky. When he becomes Knight_Peculier, this is averted - he's a knight, but no longer peculiar.
Take Up My Sword: Old_Peculier's father to Old_Peculier, to vanquish the evil spirit and destroy the Hellgates.
Temporary Love Interest: The first of three love interests that Honeydew has over the series. He gets over her pretty quickly, even if he's still assisting in the search for her in the quest for the map fragments. Plus, Old_Peculier was intending to propose to her.
Took a Level in Badass: He's much more dangerous in the non-canon Sunshine of Israpony, growing wings and coming close to bombing the heroes to death. It takes a lucky shot from Fumblemore to down him, at which point he crash lands and explodes.
A priest in Mistral City who resembles Elvis. First ran the Church of the Holy Golden Apple, but later changed it to the Church of the Holy Record.
A Skylord of Mistral City, Lysander usually provides quick transportation for the heroes. He usually manages to keep a level head even when Xephos and Honeydew are panicking or goofing off. The only character in the Israphel series voiced by Lewis (other than Xephos, obviously), though on Survival Island and in Shadow of Israphel Part 8, he was voiced by Simon.
Ambiguously Gay: Episode 26 hints that he might be in a relationship with Skylord_Jasper.
Badass: One of the more competent NPC characters in the series.
Badass Gay: If he really is in a relationship with Jasper.
One of the Skylords from Mistral City, who Lewis and Simon first meet after trying to loot his stuff. Lewis and Simon are somewhat confused as to whether he's "the good one" or "the bad one".
Camp Gay: More so in Episode 26 than in his initial appearance.
Characterization Marches On: Skylord_Jasper started out as extremely loud and extremely angry all the time. He even threatens to murder Lysander for stealing his towels. The only hint that he might have homosexual tendencies is his preference for pink in his home. When he reappears in Episode 26 he is no longer aggressive toward the heroes, he is flamboyantly gay, and he's calling Lysander "lover". And has locked him in a dungeon and stuck a ball gag in his mouth...
Cool Airship: He seemed to have had at least two of these. One was apparently destroyed with the burning of Mistral City. The other is at his summer retreat.
No Indoor Voice: He yells almost every line he has when he first appears in Mistral City.
The Rival: He first appears to be a rival to Lysander. Again, Episode 26 suggests otherwise.
An incompetent wizard from Mistral City. Often blows things up, including his own home. Played by Lalna.
The Ace: The reason he is taken along on adventure maps. He can use magic to fly and explode obstacles, very useful in the Canopy Carnage map. It was practically made for him.
Lethal Joke Character: His younger self in the Legend of Verigan Charity livestream. His combat skills are subpar, he constantly destroys his fellow adventurers by mistake with his spells, and can't gather resources without making a mess. However, he is incredibly good at blowing up spawners, and can deal with dense clusters of enemies with a blast of TNT.
New-Age Retro Hippie: He lives on a floating chunk of earth and forces you to climb up using saplings and bone meal. Whether or not this is just Simon and Lewis's speculation of what he sounds like, and not who the character actually is, is up to debate.
Too Dumb to Live: Falls to his "death" after failing to jump over a simple platform (despite claiming he could jump well and basically refusing Lewis's offer of bridging the area). Despite Simon and Lewis "regretfully lamenting his passing" note laughing at how he somehow managed to fall off and suspecting he died, he somehow survived, appearing in later custom maps and mods (but not the actual series) with nothing more than a couple of sly remarks made by the duo about his fate.
Epic Fail: Whoever was playing him didn't do a good job at that jump.
Our Vampires Are Different: Apparently there is no significant difference between vampires and humans in Minecraftia since nobody ever seemed to suspect him of being one. That, or he was just really good at hiding it.
The Reveal: He's a vampire, and why Skyhold is deserted: he killed everybody.
A female dwarf that lives in Stoneholm. She bears a striking resemblance to Daisy. She might be the wife/girlfriend of Rory.
The Load: Due to having been trapped in the cloning machine for several weeks, Webley is both dehydrated and starving, unable to fight or even move far distances, getting him out of the Sentinel took Simon and Lewis quite a bit.
Professor Horatio Grizwold (alternately spelt Grizwald and Griswold) was an archaeologist from Chronobasher's Minecraft adventure map Prof. Grizwald and the Curse of the Pyramid.In the map's story, he left notes and maps for Simon and Lewis that led to a cursed pyramid containing an equally cursed diamond. He had seemingly died in an orc attack on his cabin, but Simon later made him the go-to voice for adventure maps, writing FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE TO HAUNT YOU, YOU SON OF A BITCH.He has since appeared in the Israphel canon as one of the heroes that destroyed a great evil 100 years ago.
Ascended Extra: He only appeared in writing in an adventure map, but the memorable voice acting done by Simon made him into a One-Episode Wonder that made him become a part of the Shadow of Israphel backstory (spelled "Grizwold") in the Legend of Verigan special.
Heel Realisation: The last log shows he finally realised what he had done, and how Grizwold was right. Of course, by this point he realises this, Israphel is taunting him far too much and he rips himself to pieces because his bones are itchy.
Hero Killer: He's killed Honeydew and Xephos at least once, but given that Death Is Cheap for them, they ultimately come back anyway. He's killed Karpath as well, and was indirectly responsible for the death of Knight_Peculier.
Kick the Dog: Kidnapped and presumably killed Old_Peculier's mother. Not to mention his indirect burning down of Mistral City and BBQ Bay; he did not do these personally but ordered Jock_Fireblast to.
Kill It with Fire: He usually has his minions burn enemy cities and fortresses. He himself also gains the ability to shoot fireballs some time between episodes 16 and 31.
Knight of Cerebus: Turned the lighthearted "Let's Play" into a somewhat more serious show. At the same time, his more horrifying traits have been highlighted more, with his funny ones being phased out of anything canon.
Sdrawkcab Alias: In the temple that Xephos and Honeydew take shelter in, a sign in front of an obsidian barrier says not to open, or else a beast of sorts named Lehparsi will be unleashed. They don't realize it's backwards for Israphel.
Face-Heel Turn: In Episode 38, it is revealed that the sand had been trying to hold back the evil powers but was corrupted by Israphel.
The Virus: Turned Enoch into a being of sandstone who killed himself by ripping out his own bones.
The Evil_Honeydew clones
A pair of evil clones of Simon, the pair are created with a cloning machine that malfunctioned and left all future projects insane. They go absolutely crazy while forcing the duo to give chase to them. One gets killed by Simon later, while the other is presently missing.
Axe Crazy: They didn't come out quite right, it has to be said.
Cloning Blues: Sort of. They cause Simon a bit of trouble, and he feels a bit uncomfortable about seeing another version of himself being shot, but they personally don't seem bothered in the least.
Clone Degeneration: The machine that created them was noted as being particularly bad, creating dozens of mindless drones with nothing but the desire to kill. They came out slightly better, but they were still kind of crazy.
Butt Monkey / The Chew Toy: Bad things often happen to him. In the adventure map that Lewis and Simon took his character from he was blown up "accidentally" by Simon, then in Yoglabs he got locked in the medbay with the Little Maids, was cut up partially and shot, then had his blood taken for cloning at which point his clone was murdered.
Mission Control: "Acts" as this for Simon and Lewis during their taking back of Yoglabs.
Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Not so much in the adventure map that he first appears in, but in Yoglabs this trope is in full effect, given how the setting basically has him working with the bad guys. We don't see him doing anything bad, however.
They Killed Kenny / Death Is Cheap: He keeps coming back despite being maimed constantly and wounded fatally more than once. It's implied that the versions of him that die are clones.
You Have Failed Me: Lewis and Dr. Srivaramen cut him up and turn some of his body parts into zombies, then Lewis shoots him for not renewing his combat record. He gets better.
Part of the Yoglabs team, and notably much more off the rails than Doctor Testificate M.D.
Affably Evil: Lewis describes him as a nice man, and he indeed comes across as a polite guy, but he's also a nutty mad scientist. After chopping up Doctor Testificate, he immediately does his best to see that he's nursed back to health.
Ambiguously Brown: Discussed. While his name sounds Indian and Simon voices him with an Indian accent, Lewis isn't sure as to whether or not he comes from India or if he's a Native American.
Deadly Doctor: Given how he's in charge of genetic engineering and his labcoat is covered in blood, and that most of his experiments are extremely dangerous, he qualifies. See Axe Crazy for further details.
He also offhandedly mentions that he lost his medical license, implying he was really bad at healing people.
Shoot the Dog: Briefly proposed when Simon is tripping out, and Brightmeer suggests a Mercy Kill... by incineration. Mercifully, Lewis delays him for a while and Simon recovers.
A member of Yoglabs staff, on their science team.
Accidentally Accurate: He claims that Girlfriend Island is "a dangerous place to be" when it appears to be an island paradise, and it's quite clearly meant to be a lie to cover up where he's going. Then the basilisks attack...
Affably Evil: A nice and grandfatherly scientist, who happens to be a literal grandfather... who happens to be working for Yoglabs (and is also a bit of a Covert Pervert).
Bald of Evil: He's not that evil, but the trope still applies as he has no hair on his Minecraft skin.
Blatant Lies: When found at Girlfriend Island, he claims he's doing "important science". Sure. That's totally not what Simon and Lewis were there to do.
Arc Villain or Big Bad: One of the two, seemingly, for Sjin's series; it's presently a bit early to tell and their interactions have been limited.
Arch-Enemy: Regardless as to whether or not he's an Arc Villain or Big Bad for the series, Sjin has taken his presence very badly and made it a priority (admittedly not the highest one) to take him down.
Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: He kidnapped Kim, took her to the Nether and fed her chicken, and then stole Sjin's textures. Whether or not she's a vegetarian has yet to be confirmed, as it might make the feeding chicken part slightly more douchey.
Dark Is Evil: Hangs around in the Nether, builds with darker bricks, dressed in black.
Death Is Cheap: Sjin and Jake the Dog kill him in the Twilight Forest, but Sjin doubts he's gone for good.
Evil Tower of Ominousness: He erects one in the Nether, which he uses to keep Kim prisoner. Later seen spying on Sjin on the top of another, though Sjin seems oddly oblivious to it, either because he built it for aesthetic reasons or doesn't want to go near it.
Expy: He seems to be the Sjin's Farm version of Israphel, being a kidnapping serial killer with a habit of troubling the protagonists, who's also linked to an old and dark entity and isn't played for laughs. This had led to people speculating that the two are either linked or the same person.
Funny Background Event: In one of the introductions, it is possible to see him get up and walk away from his post.
Genre Savvy: During his second direct confrontation with Sjin in the Twilight Forest, he camps at the portal to stop him escaping another way and starts shooting him the second he sees him.
Kick the Dog: In a past backstory, it's revealed (or at least heavily implied that he's responsible) that shortly after helping Abel farm his crops, he brutally murdered his parents.
Knight of Cerebus: It turns out he's a serial killer who's been doing his thing for a very long time, and also that he plans to blow up Sjin's farm plus all his guests.
Not-So-Harmless Villain: Meeting him in the present, he hasn't done that much of real damage. However, in the past he supposedly murdered Abel's parents for fun and in the present he's secretly planning to bomb Sjin's Sjindig with a nuke and some TNT. After this revelation, he stops being played for laughs.
Obviously Evil: Looking at his skin makes it obvious that he isn't good.
Poke the Poodle: He stole Sjin's texture pack. Not exactly a heinous crime.
Scary Scarecrows: He resides in a fortress he built in the Nether and kidnaps people. Justified Trope, as he was meant to be used by Sjin to scare away birds (read: serve as an aesthetic decoration as birds don't exist in Feed the Beast with the exception of vanilla chickens and Twilight Forest penguins, neither of which can threaten crops).
Supernatural Is Purple: Most of his face is purple, and he fits as a scarecrow that was brought to life through magical means.
The Voiceless: He hasn't said a word, either in chat or with one of the Yogscast pretending to be him, though he leaves notes to get past this. He does have an Evil Laugh in Abel's flashback.
Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: He sure is taking his sweet time with his plan to bomb the Sjindig. Averted in his confrontation with Sjin in the Twilight Forest, in which he starts shooting Sjin with a machine gun.
A farmer who left a journal regarding his mysterious past and his encounters with an animated scarecrow, strongly implied to be Strawfingers.
