Main Characters

    Byron Oakington III 
The... hero of the story. He wants to be a bodybuilder and battle homunculi for amusement.

  • Disappeared Dad: Byron's father is nowhere to be seen. Since his mother claims the man was 72 and in ailing health when she married him, it's a safe bet he's dead by now.
  • Heroic Lineage: In the comments of the first episode, Dorkly implies that Byron might be Rusty's great-great-great grandfather.
  • Inbred and Evil: Byron refers to his family as being "tastefully inbred".
  • Lack of Empathy: Byron openly admits that he has no empathy.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: While looking for a corpse to make a homunculi for, he dismisses one as "too Irish".
  • Spoiled Brat: A wealthy child from an aristocratic family, who orders his butler around like a dog.
  • Upper-Class Twit: Byron has such a large family fortune that he's guaranteed a life of frivolity. He spends his time creating monstrosities, despite knowing little about it.


     Lady Oakington 
Byron's mother.

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: She looks quite young, and given how old she was when she got married she might only be 22 years old.
  • Hands-Off Parenting: Has no problem letting her son travel around creating and battling homunculi.
  • Old Man Marrying a Child: She claims that she was 11 years old when she married Byron's father - a 72 year old man who was senile and suffering from bone madness.
  • Spot of Tea: Shown drinking tea in the one scene where she appears.
     Professor Nox 
An ether-addicted professor who provides Byron with his creatures and teaches him how battling bodies goes.

  • Church Going Villain: Professor Nox invokes God twice so far - describing bodybuilding as "subverting God Almighty's will for profit" and insisting that augmentations to homunculi be called Creationisming instead of Evolving.
  • Everybody Has Standards: He may create abominations, but even he is briefly disturbed by Byron's lack of empathy.
  • Functional Addict: He's addicted to ether, but is still able to create homunculi with science.
Byron's butler.

  • Old Retainer: He's elderly and obeys his mistress and her son without question.
  • Servile Snarker: Aloysious makes one quip, saying "It is really quite tragic, sir" after Byron orders him to mourn Failed Rat Experiment #6 for him.



     Failed Rat Experiment # 6 
Byron's creature. Later named Eye-possum.

  • Adorable Abomination: In it's Failed Rat Experiment #6 form, it looks like a cute mouse.
  • Ax-Crazy: In it's Eye-possum form, it is infected with rabies and claws Piggley Geoff nearly to death.
  • Back from the Dead: Killed by Squid-Turtle in the first episode. After this, Professor Nox attaches it's bloated eye to the headless corpse of an opossum and reanimates the corpse.
  • Expy: One of Pikachu.
  • Taking You with Me: Electrocutes Squid-Turtle to death after being crushed against the floor by it.
     Piggley Geoff 
A creature owned by another aristocratic child.

  • And I Must Scream: Is in great pain after being brought back to life, and wants to die again. This is made worse by the fact that it was previously in Heaven before being revived.
  • Expy: Of Jiggly Puff.
  • Back from the Dead: Is revived with revenant juice, much to it's displeasure.
