Cast Filler Tropes
"No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous?
Almost, at times, the Fool."
T. S. Eliot, "The Love-Song of J. Alfred Prufrock"

You know those guys, not memorable, but there. They take up space, but don't really do or say much. Huh. May be the animated equivalent of furniture, there to add verisimilitude; it's not like the main characters could be running the ship or attending high school by themselves.

Anyway, here's a list of them, not that they'll matter much. Or will they?

... nah!
