    Eric (The Protagonist / Main Character / MC) 
The Player Character. A student at CrestHaven University as well a member of its tennis team. Unknown to most of his friends and teammates however all is not well: due to familial and financial hardships he is currently living in a homeless shelter.

  • Adorkable: He's soft-spoken and polite and ends up stumbling and stammering when he gets flustered.

  • All-Loving Hero: Eric is kind and friendly to everyone he meets.

  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]: You can name Eric whatever you want.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: In his default appearance he has light blue eyes reflecting his soft-hearted nature.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Some of the bad dialogue choices sound more like he is saying the wrong thing at the wrong time rather than being hostile.

  • Nice Guy: A polite guy that attracts any of the guys with his demeanor.
  • Not So Different: When Eric talks down on Darius' pervertedness, he himself has the option to make lewd comments which makes Spencer tell Eric that he sounds a lot like Darius.

  • Unexpected Virgin: When he admits he's a virgin, Darius laughs and admits to thinking he and Spencer had hooked up before.

    Harold "Coach" Grifter
Coach of the CrestHaven University tennis team as well as one of its professors. While usually friendly, he takes his duties very seriously and can sometimes come across as gruff. Nevertheless, Coach Grifter will happily help any of his students.
  • Adorkable: Harold is probably the biggest dork of them all. He gets incredibly traumatized by any kind of lewd comments or situations.
  • Anime Hair: On top of his brown fur he has black head hair as well as patches of yellow fur on his forearms, chest, and a spiky tuft on his head, à la Cloud Strife.
  • The Bear: Bonus points for being a literal bear as well.
  • Bears Are Bad News: For Chester at least, especially since he falls victim to Chester's clumsiness at times.
  • Beary Friendly: Coach looks like a mean bear, but he is actually really friendly and supportive and wants to become a famous author.
  • Big Eater: Big time. One of his favorite restaurants is a buffet and he is capable of finishing almost an entire cake by himself.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: He sports huge ones and it helps to emphasize his age as the oldest on the team and his authority as the coach of the team.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Hoo boy, Harold is the worst at this. Doesn't make him any less endearing though.
  • Carpet of Virility: Sports a large and thick patch of blonde hair on his chest, a rather odd example since he is also completely covered in fur.
  • Clifftop Caterwauling: On their second date, Grifter screams out his frustrations from the past few weeks over a cliffside.
  • Closet Geek: He writes fantasy novels, loves poetry, a big musical fan, and even used to play Tabletop RPGs. Not like you would get any of that just by looking at him.
  • Emotional Bruiser: The man has been through a LOT, so to say he's emotional might be an understatement.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Everyone calls him Coach.
  • Genius Bruiser: Despite his muscular exterior, he is a passionate English teacher as well as an aspiring sci-fi/fantasy author.
  • Hidden Depths: The big burly tennis coach is an English teacher and aspiring author who loves to read and write.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Repeatedly worries he's not good enough for Eric or that there is something wrong with him. This is almost certainly a result of his backstory: his ex-wife abruptly left him after he revealed he was bisexual and he fell into a deep depression as a result.
  • Nice Guy: A down-to-earth and compassionate man who loves to see people succeed with his help.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He loves to do what he can to help his students succeed, even giving Eric rides home when he needs it.
  • Stepford Smiler: Of the Depressed kind, especially when Diana comes back around. A major theme of his route is to get him to start enjoying life again.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Not only is Harold the tennis coach but also Eric's English teacher.
  • Team Dad: Being the coach of the team as well as being the oldest, it's kind of a given that he is the "team dad".
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: You gotta have tufts of black and blonde fur on top of your brown fur apparently.

    Chester Hayes
Chester's just another member of the tennis team and a fellow classmate at CrestHaven University. He can be hot-tempered at times, but you can count on him to help keep you motivated to improve yourself. As much as he likes to work out and try to make himself more muscled than he already if, but he enjoys his food a bit too much to get rid of that gut.
  • Adorkable: Clumsy, loves anime, goes to conventions, loves to cook, always tries to keep a positive attitude despite his unluckiness; Chester is a precious dork.
  • Affectionate Nickname: His mom used to call him "Moo" and if he's the protagonist's love interest, that's also his nickname for Chester.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: After a horrible experience one night, all of the players on his former football team turned on him, pretty much outcasting him.
  • Anime Hair: Not as extreme as the others, but he has a spiky set of hair on his head. Then again, considering his love for anime, this may be intentional.
  • Big Eater: He loves to eat a ton and has a passion for cooking delicious meals.
  • Big Little Brother: Chester is surprisingly taller and stronger than his older brother Andrew.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Boasts one of the most powerful serves of anyone on the team and wears his emotions on his sleeve.
  • Butt-Monkey: He stumbles, trips, gets hit by balls, gets reprimanded, loses his temper, poor Chester just doesn't have it easy.
  • Cosplay: He makes his own costumes, too!
  • Foil: To Dozer. They share a similar play-style emphasizing strength, taking advantage of their considerable builds. Chester, however, is extremely emotional, often struggling with his temper and general lack of discipline leading to problems on the court. Dozer meanwhile is very much The Stoic at all times.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Foolish to Andrew's Responsible.
  • Gag Penis: He has the biggest member of the team (which is an achievement for this game). Mostly Played for Laughs but is Played for Drama in his route for obvious reasons.
    Darius: "If you're going to bottom that, you better practice. Otherwise, he's gonna split you open, you're not going be able to sit for a month, and you'll not want to try again like...ever."
  • Game Master: Fills this role in Grifter's route when the team plays a tabletop RPG together.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He has anger issues (likely because he is a bull), and is prone to lashing out and breaking rackets when he gets mad.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Chester likes to eat steak and he is a bull. Think about that for a second.
  • The Klutz: He is quite clumsy and even wears horn protectors for his, and others', safety.
  • Otaku: Loves to watch anime and plays trading card games. One of his route's dream sequences seems to take it a little bit too far, however.
  • Proud to Be a Geek: He loves to show Eric his hobbies and has no qualms about how geeky or dorky any of it looks.
  • Real Men Cook: Is extremely proud of his culinary abilities and can even offer to teach Eric.
  • Trauma Button: If Eric tries to wake up Chester via rubbing his morning wood, he'll wake up screaming and start attempting to punch Eric, thinking he's being raped again.

    Spencer Caldon
Here we have Spencer Caldon, ranked number one on CrestHaven University's tennis team at the end of last season. This husky has been Eric's friend for a while now, and he's known for being good at pretty much everything he does. But who knows, maybe this guy has something hidden about him that even his closest friends don't know?
  • The Ace: The best on the tennis team who can take over for Coach, perfect grades in math, charismatic, popular with the ladies, Spence has got it all. At least, that's what he wants you to believe.
  • Academic Athlete: Excels at both the court and classroom. He even tutors other students on the side.
  • Adorkable: He acts calm and collected but easily gets just as flustered and awkward as Eric. It's no wonder they've been friends since childhood, they're even so much alike!
  • Berserk Button: He has two.
    • The first can be summarized as "harm to Eric." If someone tries to physically or psychologically hurt Eric — as one of his co-workers and one of Darius's "friends" tries to do — Spencer will get enraged to the point Eric comments how he's never seen him so angry.
    • His other Berserk Button is general, especially on either of their routes. This is related to their history since Darius led Spencer on in the past and broke his heart by "cheating" on Spencer, though Darius didn't necessarily see the situation the same way at the time.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: As just stated above, Eric will comment on how Spencer when he's calm and when he's angry seems like two completely different people.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He always protected Eric from bullies and Eric looked up to him like a big brother.
  • Birds of a Feather: He and Eric have a lot in common and have been friends since childhood.
  • Bromantic Foil: He and Eric are best friends and while Eric is more passive and introverted, Spencer is more aggressive and extroverted. These two can eventually hook up.
  • Chick Magnet: The ladies love Spencer but he doesn't exactly love them back.
  • Childhood Friends: With Eric.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Eric thinks the best way to see if Spencer is attracted to him is to set up a situation where he'll react in a jealous fashion for him. Turns out he was right.
  • Cuteness Proximity: He finds Eric's behavior just "so gosh-darned cute".
  • Fireball Eyeballs: Has a sprite with this that's only used when he's really mad.
  • Forgotten Friend, New Foe: In Darius' route, Spencer shows contempt and even jealousy because Eric is hanging out with Darius.
  • Foil:
    • To the Brilliant, but Lazy and flirtatious Darius. Spencer holds himself to high professional and academic standards and really pushes himself to excel. He also feels strongly that sex is special and should be shared with someone close. However certain events show he has a hidden rebellious streak which can be seen in his job and how he and Darius used to date.
    • In Dozer's route, he's a foil to Harvey, who is also a husky and tends to be the third wheel in Eric's and Dozer's text exchanges, similar to how Spencer is the third wheel in their real life exchanges. This similarity is lampshaded by Dozer after Eric reveals one of his Anxiety Dreams in which Harvey looks exactly like Spencer.
  • Furry Reminder: Being a Husky, he sheds like he has two coats, loves tummy rubs while being brushed, and doesn't mind holding things in his mouth as if he was fetching for them like a dog.
    Eric: "...God, you're adorable."
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Oh boy, Spencer can have this bad. He cares a lot about Eric and wants to see him happy, however, his feelings for Eric can make him start acting strangely, if not downright berserk, when he learns he dating someone else, or if Eric is dating him and is seen with someone else. This can end up even worse if Darius is involved somehow.
  • The Lancer: He is second-in-command to Coach Grifter.
  • Look Both Ways: Gets hit by a bus in one of Eric's dreams.
  • Lethal Chef: Cooking is notably one of the few things he doesn't excel in, but he tries.
  • The Tease: Despite wanting to wait for the right moment, he constantly teases Eric with the idea of sex but most of the time he leaves him wanting more. Fitting, considering his route's career as a male stripper.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: He has four brothers. In his own words, "I guess one of us had to be gay."
  • Mighty Lumberjack: He dresses and acts like a lumberjack Eric's fantasies and in his strip performances.
  • Relationship Upgrade: He and Eric can go from best friends to boyfriends.
  • The Rival: He and Darius are at odds a lot of times. He looks down on his lewd ways and dislikes his treatment towards Eric.
  • Slut-Shaming: He looks down on Darius for his promiscuous ways and even insults him when he can. Considering Spencer's route, this is hypocritical, given the hyper-sexualized job he has.
  • Stage Name: As revealed in his route, he uses "White Thunder" for his job.
  • Straight Gay: Considering that women both young and old still hound after him even after coming out and getting a boyfriend, he must be doing something right.
  • Unexpected Virgin: Despite being the most sought-after player on the team, the closest he ever got to sex before Eric was a straight up rejection of it from Spencer towards Darius.
  • Workaholic: Between school, tennis, work, and various volunteer activities Spencer ends up with a very tight schedule most days.

Introducing the tallest member of the University's tennis team, we have Dozer. He tends to stay quiet and keep to himself for the most part, so it's hard to judge what kind of person he really is. Nobody on the team knows much about him other than he has the precision to match the power behind his shots, but that doesn't mean you can't try to figure him out.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Just the thought of seeing Dozer angry actually frightens Eric and most of the cast, including Dozer.
  • Big Eater: Justified by his needing a lot of food to maintain his bulk.
  • Big Guy: Even by this game's standards, he is noticeably large.
  • Book Dumb: He struggles with math and had help from a friend in high school but he is very skilled in physical therapy.
  • Brutal Honesty: He can be blunt and when Eric jokes that he can lift as much weight as him, Dozer just shoots him down with a "no".
  • Caring Gardener: One of his major hobbies is plant care, especially bonsai trees.
  • Covert Pervert: Despite his calm demeanor, Dozer can be very flirty and sexually assertive towards someone he trusts.
  • Defrosting Ice King: He seems cold and uncaring at first, but once someone takes the time to get to know him and help him out, he can be a very kind and caring individual.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: Sometimes, his size and strength can be difficult when it comes to handling gardening or physical therapy.
  • The Dreaded: How people acted towards him in his second high school when he nearly beat his best friend to death at his first.
  • Everybody Hates Mathematics: Dozer is not fond of math and has trouble learning on his own.
  • Every Scar Has a Story: He has a scar on the back of his head due to protecting Harvey from a bomb attack in high school.
  • Eyes Always Shut: This helps emphasize his calm and collected demeanor, though as revealed in his route, he just needed new contacts and has been squinting this whole time. This is ultimately subverted in his route, though.
  • Foil: To Chester. They share a similar play-style emphasizing strength, taking advantage of their considerable builds. Dozer always tries to keep himself in check both physically and emotionally. This gives him more control on the court but can hurt his ability to communicate with other people. Chester meanwhile is very much a Boisterous Bruiser, both on and off the court.
  • Gentle Giant: He is practically Hulk-sized and yet he has a very gentle touch and a soft heart.
  • Good Samaritan: He is always willing to help anyone who is injured, such as Chester, Eric, or even an opponent from a different team.
  • Kaiju: Refereed to this often by kids in the Japan Town in Brindel. In his route, this is one of the nicknames Eric gives him after he is one in a dream.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Dozer points out that no one ever really approaches him because of his quiet nature, except for his high school friend and Eric.
  • Mentor Ship: Dozer warms up to Eric when he mentors him and helps him out with his math problems and issues.
  • Nice Guy: He is very humble and polite.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: Dozer has bright pink nipples...despite being a reptile.
  • The Medic: He's going for a medical degree and works at a local rehabilitation center.
  • Nonhuman Humanoid Hybrid: Although they're both reptiles, his mother is a skink whereas his father is a Komodo dragon.
  • Not Good with People: He prefers nature and having as little interaction with people as possible.
  • Real Men Cook: Cooks a bunch of healthy and tasty foods for the group.
  • Repetitive Name: Both his first and last name are Dozer, a quirk from the country his family emigrated from.
  • The Quiet One: At first, Eric has a hard time getting a conversation going because he doesn't say much.
  • The Stoic: He isn't very emotional or expressive especially since his eyes are always closed.
  • Shout-Out: ''"DOZER SMASH!"''note 
  • Terse Talker: He is very blunt and doesn't add much to his sentences.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Heavy storms and tornados are one of the few things that can make him break his calm demeanor.
  • You Remind Me of X: Variant 3, Eric's offering to help him with math and his eagerness of hanging out with him reminds Dozer of his high school friend Harvey who did the same things. Considering that Harvey and Dozer were a couple at one point, these can be somewhat worrisome.

    Darius Maynor
The final member of the University's tennis team and its resident pervert. He is extremely sociable but with the unfortunate tendency to hit on just about anyone with a Y-chromosome. At first, it seems like there isn't much this lion takes seriously but when he does choose to apply himself he demonstrates some remarkable skill. Maybe there's more to this flirtatious feline.
  • Anime Hair: Instead of having a mane, he shaved his to look more like human hair, and he keeps a perfectly coiffed spiky mane on his head, à la Lloyd Irving.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Boasts a wide variety of skills, from music to stunt riding to math, yet barely applies himself on the tennis court or in his studies.
  • The Casanova: He happens to charm many guys he sees and also breaks many hearts when they want a relationship with him.
  • Cats Are Mean: Definitely the meanest on the team due to him being cavalier, frivolous and overly promiscuous.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: Of the sexual snark variety. He makes many quips and innuendos, sometimes not so subtle.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: One of his sprites has this whenever he's up to something or teasing.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: His pervertedness can't be quenched and yet, he fully endorses relationships where he teases and sometimes even helps out Eric when he notices the chemistry between him and someone else.
  • Foil: To the reserved and hard-working Spencer. Darius is first and foremost a flirt, prefers casual sex, and while he is very skilled in many areas he prefers not to apply himself. However certain events imply he may have a hidden romantic side to the point that he and Spencer used to date.
  • Hidden Depths: Underneath the perverted exterior is a professional stunt motorcyclist and proficient actor who can play piano well.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While his obsession with sex and mischievous personality can be off-putting to most, scratching the surface reveals a much more relaxed personality under it.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Not obvious at first but becomes apparent after he winds up in the hospital where none of his "friends" or even his parents can be bothered to come to visit him.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: He really gets around and is a pretty laid back and chill guy to hang out with.
  • Panthera Awesome: He is a lion with a unique mane cut and is a badass stunt motorcyclist.
  • Really Gets Around: He apparently hooks up with different guys every week.
  • The Rival: He and Spencer don't seem to get along. For valid reasons.
  • Shipper on Deck: Helps Eric hook up with both Spencer and Coach Grifter in their respective routes. He's also more than happy to offer (usually unsolicited) sexual advice.
  • The Matchmaker: Granted, his methods are to an extreme a lot of a time, but they tend to end up working a lot of the time.
  • The Tease: He loves teasing Eric and getting him embarrassed.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Darius planned on hooking up Eric and Spencer. Great! And how did he plan it out? By texting a friend to forcibly molest Eric and get Spencer angry and jealous. ...Not so great, but it worked.

  • Art Evolution: While the art style going from CursedMark to CaptainGerBear has several subtle character design changes, Richard has seen the most massive change. CM's Design vs CGB's Design
  • Handy Man: Is usually found moving, building, or fixing things around the shelter.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Can seem rather rude and vocal in his complaints but is nevertheless very supportive of Maria and Eric.
  • Servile Snarker: While he doesn't work for Maria outright, he's easily the most sarcastic character in the novel.
