    Amanda 

Amanda

Dr Germahn's lab assistant. Perky, happy, and eternal victim of Dr. Germahn's experiments, almost always involving shrinking.


    Lisa 

Lisa

Amanda's roommate, and prospective lawyer. Apparently has a crush on Amanda, but she's reluctant to voice it where Amanda can hear.


    Chika 

Chika

Amanda's colleague.


  • Only Sane Man: Her science may be mad, but she isn't.
  • Situational Sexuality: She raised her hand when Lisa and Amanda questioned whether anyone "experiments" to test their sexuality. However, she did not reveal the results of those tests.
    Chika: Oh, don't look so shocked. I approach everything scientifically.

    Dan 

Dan

Author Avatar. Rarely shows up, but there are times. The only times he hasn't been drawn as a squirrel guy is when he was a squirrel girl.


  • Ambiguous Gender Identity: Once answered a question about his gender identity with a literal Shrug of God in writing form, so the jury's still out.
  • Author Avatar: Almost any time he's shown, it's as the artist/writer.
  • Beast Man: He's never seen in human form, instead appearing as an anthropomorphic squirrel creature.
  • Loophole Abuse: Once turned himself into a girl to escape a hammer beatdown, since the hammers didn't work on women.
  • The Rant: Here's one.

     Writer's Block 

Writer's Block

Personification of Dan's writer's block. A living block with some animal features. Makes it harder for people to write in its presence. Is sometimes the protagonist in non-canon NP storylines.

  • Lazy Bum: It has a cat-like habit of sitting on Dan's desk and not moving until Dan figures out how to continue his story.

     Angelic Tweeting Bird 

Here because where else will we put it? When there is nudity, such as during the np story where Grace Sarah and Ellen are making a sexy male form, an invisible angelic tweeting bird flies between the fourth wall and the readers.

  • Scenery Censor: Is a living one, and ironically exists to keep the author from having to resort to this or awkward and contrived camera angles.
