Characters / Happy Sun Daycare

Go To

    The Reporter 
An unnamed reporter who serves as the main protagonist and narrator for the story.

  • The Hero: Well, as much a hero as an investigative reporter for an online news blog can be.
  • No Name Given: We never find out what his name is.
  • Oh, Crap!: His realization when finds out what really happened at the daycare.
  • Right Man in the Wrong Place: Who would've thought a reporter would expose a conspiracy involving a werewolf?

    Mr. Smith / The Werewolf 
A former employee at Happy Sun Daycare who communicated with the protagonist via e-mail - a kind man who suffers from a strange form or narcolepsy or, rather, lycanthropy.

  • Crusty Caretaker: Subverted. He's actually a really nice guy.
  • Friend to All Children: He tells the reporter that he tended to get along well with the children at the daycare. Which makes the fact he was a werewolf used to terrorize said children all the more horrifying and tragic.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: His actions when transformed are more akin to that of a frightened animal than anything truly malicious.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Mr. Smith’s lycanthropy is akin to narcolepsy; rather than being aware that he’s transformed, his consciousness ends up in a state similar to a deep sleep while his body takes over.

    Daycare Staff 
The former staff who worked at Happy Sun Daycare. Their job was to ensure the children could learn and play in a safe environment. Their idea of punishment, however...

  • Greater-Scope Villain: They're the ones who are behind the whole ordeal of using Mr. Smith as a means to punish unruly children.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: They are the true villains of the story. Mr. Smith is a Nice Guy, and even his wolf form behaves more like a real wolf than the violent monsters werewolves are traditionally depicted as, acting more like a scared and confused animal that attacks out of instinct.
  • Karma Houdini: They get no comeuppance for locking their charges in a room with a dangerous animal and causing several of them to get scratched and bitten.
