     The Kids 

Team Messenficken

Whittney Resno

Bill Hill

Jane Miller

A young woman, she grew up quite spoiled. Her mother is a rich inventor, so she tends to get whatever she wants. And with the attention span of a hyperactive indecisive lemming, what she wants tends to change week by week. She's been through a baseball phase, a puzzle phase, a painting phase, an archery phase, a plane flying phase, even a phase where she thought she was spanish! Her only constants are mermaids and plushies.

She is also awfully quite stupid for a smart person. Her gullidiocy (gullible idiocy) is her biggest flaw.

William Firenne

Vanessa Green

Ron Naaldboom

  • Bishonen
    • Which is a source of considerable angst for him and directly led to his smoking, bodybuilding, and getting into a lot of fights.
      • As of recently, Bifauxnen. Wait, Ron is a GIRL? You bet. Just one who wants to be a boy. Nobody noticed because she has a more...realistic chest for a boybuilding 13-year old girl, and also because of the MANLYNESS she exhibits. Jane, thankfully, does not min.
  • Black Best Friend (Radon)
  • Jerkass (debatably a Jerkass Woobie)
  • Love Triangle (Both he and Yuzuki loved Jane, Ron then gave up on pursuing it, but ended up together with her anyway...which is for the better, 'cuz Yuzuki turned out to be Jane's brother.)
    • Let's not forget Whitney has a crush on him.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts (He and God.)
  • Smoking Is Cool (Indeed!)
  • Super Strength (Not as much as his guardian or his older-brother-figure Friedrich, though. Also a Charles Atlas Superpower.)
  • Testosterone Poisoning (Everything he makes in the Medium is somehow at least partially constructed of fire and littered with spikes.)
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior (He smokes pretty heavily, and apparently used XTC and possibly marijuana at some point in the past)

Team Eagle's Talon

Radon Williams

  • Battle Couple: Together with Adrian.
  • Black Best Friend: Ron sees him as his best friend.
  • Blood Knight: And how!
  • Cyber Punk: His two pairs of fighting shoes, the Steppin' Razors and Bouncin' Razors, have a "sweet cyberpunk aesthetic", the result of throwing a copy of Neuromancer into the mix of pizza slicer and Heelies.
  • Eldritch Abomination: He was possessed by one via the Necronomihoodie.
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: Ashley, and its only embarrassing until he figures out that it was his granddad's daughter's name.
  • Heroic BSoD: After he suicidally goes after a pair of giclops to prove himself when he's still not high enough of a level to fight them and gets his ass kicked. He gets better.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Pizza slicers. And when he starts alchemizing them, they become even more improbable.
  • Jerkass: He definitely has his moments.
  • Pride: And then some
  • Victorious Childhood Friend: Adrian.

Adrian Welsh

Sarati Antera

  • Ascended Extra: Her first appearance was as Adrian's subconscious mind. Not long after, she got a robot body. Not long after that, she had her robot body replaced with a real one, which, thanks to weird time shit, she ended up having had all along.
  • Become A Real Girl
  • The Speechless: But she can still communicate via text message.
  • Technopath

James Vitas (Knight of Secrets)

  • Beware the Silly Ones: More interested in naming his team rather than discussing actual team goals. Prone to silly tangents and ideas. Strange fondness for hats. But like the other kids playing Sburb, he is somewhat of a badass. Not as silly as Wayne though.
  • The Chosen One: To the Meerkat people of his Land of Grass and Tunes, James is the one chosen by fate to assume the role of Meerkat Pope in their time of crisis.
  • Instrument of Murder: Fights with alchemized guitars. His latest is the FIRESTORM which he can use to attack with fireballs, lightning, and wind.
  • Jumped at the Call: He actually was reluctant about the combat aspects of Sbrub at first and was vaguely uninterested in fixing his planet in the Medium but offer him a possibly cosmetic leader role and you'll be surprised at his enthusiasm.
  • Nice Guy
  • ObfuscatingSillyness: He has some good advice despite how he acts much of the time.
  • The Power of Rock: Although his actual guitar playing needs work.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: No matter how cosmetic the leadership role of Team Eagle's Talon may be he's more reasonable than the Evil Overlord he keeps claiming to be.

Wayne Gerowsky

He's a pretty chill guy. (yes this is a full bio)

  • Ambiguous Gender: There has been a considerable amount of debate over whether or not he's actually a he.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: For example, inviting a berserk Vrigus to have a picnic with him.
    • Not that it didn't work... Vrigus ended up knocking himself out and getting buried under BOXES AND BOXES FULL OF KNICKKNACKS.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: The Ear Shattering Kaboom gave him this. He leveled his house with it.
  • Paper Master: Sans superpowers.
  • Tomeof Eldritch Lore: Turns out Father bought the Encyclopedia Necromatica at some point.

Friend Imp III

Yuzuki Grotheren

A young man, he grew up all alone in his house, taken care of by his neighbor, but in the shadows. Eventually grew to hate everyone in his game, believing them all to be backstabbing liars out to betray him at every turn.

Except Jane. His sister, and his heart's desire.

She was the only one consistently nice to him throughout his life, and her quirky actions didn't help at all. When he found out she was his sister, he tried to stop all advances towards her, especially since she got a boyfriend in Ron. But recent manipulations by one Friedrich has led him to believe that it's OKAY to have a relationship with her...if he ascends to become a God.

Proceed with his manipulations and such in getting her to love him in return.

Mark Patterson


Frau Krutzt/Friedrich


  • The Mentor: He attempted to be this to Radon, to teach him about patience and planning. He failed.


  • Trash of the Titans: The entire house was filled with useless knickknacks. There were a family of raccoons living in it.
  • Hands-Off Parenting: The only times he came home were to add to the labyrinth.

James' Sister (Jeanne Vitas)



Amorsa Harlum

  • Odd Couple (Violin/elecrtic-guitar combination note  playing, alternatively bitchy and very nice and supportive girl coupled with a hypersexual, dumb-as-a-bag-of-bricks, super-strong cavedweller? Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it's this trope)
  • Posthumous Character: Has been dead since the RP started, along with seven other trolls. Revealed through flashback chatlogs.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds (Bitch-friends with Euboea, before she died)

Jasmet Pongal

A young farmer. She's been best friends with Catlin since she was a grub. She loves plants, drawing, and baking. She has a horrible temper. She gets stabby when drunk. She gets drunk very easily.

Moccus Arbaka

The eternal optimist. He is quite sure that he can fix everything with words, and that the caste system will crumble under the power of his words. As he sees things, the Empress wants to do the right thing, deep down!

He is also devoted to Euboea.

Vrigus Anderk

  • Bi the Way (He very casually admits to Neemea that he has red feelings toward Kobatt)
  • Dumb Muscle
  • Eye Scream (When he gets particularly angry, blood spurts from the corners of his eyes. It hurts quite a bit)
  • Love Triangle (Averted - he left his homosexual redrom towards Kobatt unexplored because he knows Amorsa might come Back from the Dead [not that it particularly matters since both he and Amorsa are polyamorous anyway...but Kobatt isn't, hence...)
  • Nigh Invulnerable (Riding a meteor down through the atmosphere and surviving because of raw stats? Check!)
  • The Pig Pen (VRIGUS, YOU SMELL)
  • Not Raised By Anything At All Actually
  • Rapunzel Hair (A variation - it's an unkempt, knotted mess that reaches well down his back. On Jasmet's insistence, he uses shampoo...but NOT conditioner.)
  • Super Strength (Even more so than Ron)

Kobatt Aegiss

  • Berserk Button - Generally, attributing things to luck. More specifically, Serani's unbeatable luck.
  • Butt-Monkey - Between being extremely color-blind and unaware of it for most of his life, falling down some stairs and being stuck at the bottom for a day, people talking about how awesome colors are in front of him, people making fun of his eating habits, getting tossed around in battle, and embarrassing picture shenanigans, you cannot hope to beat Kobatt Aegiss at being a butt monkey. He's simply the best there is.
  • Chef of Iron - Uses ladles from his kitchen to strife. Uses various poisonous ingredients as back-up weapons. Apparently, defeated his denizen by cooking.
  • Color-blind - To the extent that everything he sees shows up as either black or white. He is functionally blind in areas of low contrast.
  • Find the Cure! - Although not due to anybody being poisoned. Its just how his cooking method works. Take a lethal ingredient, find the antidote, and then use it to cook.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold - Was much nicer before the game. Its revealed that he's afraid to get attached to people in case they die. The trollwinism is part of this.
  • Improbable Weapon User - LADLE. Even more improbable later on in the time-line because his end-game weapon is an EXPLODING LADLE.
  • Lethal Chef - Inverted. Lethal ingredients, perfectly edible food.
  • Nice Hat - His stylish yet disgusting caustichef hat. Made of cheese mined from an ancient Alternian cheese mine. If he ever fails in his caustichef duties, he has to eat the hat.
  • Poisoned Weapons - The result of him alchemizing his ladles with ingredients he had laying around his kitchen. - Hitting enemies with the ladle causes their skin to burn and smoke.
  • Real Trolls Love Plushies - Although he tries to keep this hobby a secret
  • Security Plushie - Of his dead lusus Manticorn which he cuddles when he sleeps.
  • Stoic Woobie - Kobatt needs all the hugs but would never ask for them.
    • Not So Stoic - The facade cracks if the subject of his dead lusus, Manticorn, comes up.
  • Supreme Chef - Is extremely good at what he does. Due to devoting nearly all his time to his cooking practice.
  • Team Chef - Most of the other trolls can cook but Kobatt tends to the most.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds - With Serani. Hatefriendship is a beautiful thing.
  • Weak, but Skilled - Probably one of the weaker fighters among the trolls. His knowledge of poisons was cited by Neemea as what he was bringing to the Blue Team. Also, seen using various poisonous ingredients during Strife.

Neemea Opallo

  • Badass Preacher
  • Bi the Way
  • Chainsaw Good: She expresses a desire to pursue the acquisition of the chainsaw kind abstratus, fantasizing about being able to effectively use chainswords, chainaxes, chainspears, and chainchains (Chainsaws with small chainsaws for teeth)
  • Chaotic GoodChaotic Neutral: Extra emphasis on "chaotic".
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: She has been able to pull off crazy things simply through sheer willpower and refusal to give up.
  • Covert Pervert: Until Heceta stumbled upon an open text document on her computer, no one had any idea that she had been writing smut starring her friends since she was 6 solar sweeps old.
  • Crazy Awesome
  • Crazy-Prepared: She has a Battlenun of Boomicus outfit for every occasion she's thought of. And carries a travel size of the Bible of Boomicus. And carts around a bunch of bombs.
  • Demonic Possession: By Entrop, courtesy of Orcuus.
  • Determinator
  • Genki Girl
  • Get Ahold Of Yourself Man: She tries to do this with a very depressed Vrigus by punching him in the face.
  • Handicapped Badass: She doesn't let a little thing like deafness get in her way.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her title in Sgrub was the Warrior of Hope. According to her, hope is the ability to stand even in the face of insurmountable odds and come out on top. Ties in with Determinator.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Impossibly Cool Clothes: Her various Battlenun outfits.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Her lusus never told her that she was sick with the plague, not wanting to worry her. Since Winky died and took her secret to the grave, Neemea still has no idea that her lusus was sick at all.
  • Mad Bomber: She loves explosions so much she created a religion centered around them.
  • Memetic Mutation: A veritable mine amongst the players of the RP, having contributed at least three at the time of this writing.
    • Any possible pairing, sexual or otherwise? NEEMEA WRITES IT. (Even Mister Always and the degil, apparently)
  • Naughty Nun: She's a self-proclaimed "Battlenun" that writes smut starring her friends.
  • No Indoor Voice: A result of being deaf, she can't tell how loud she is. Not that she was quiet before she got deaf.
  • Rousing Speech: She'll give one to anyone, for any reason, but Kobatt is the usual recipient of one of these.
  • Screw Destiny: Possibly the biggest proponent of this.
  • Shout-Out: She's pretty much a walking Kamina shout out.
  • Squick: Most of her friends' reactions to discovering her rule 34 of them.
  • Start My Own: She created her own religion.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Her reaction upon discovering Daurus knew more about Sgrub's nature than he let on at first.
  • Undying Loyalty: To her friends, to the point that when three of them are trapped on Earth early in the RP, her plan (which, sadly never came to completion) was to use shaped charges to blow the asteroid she lived in through a Space Gate to Earth, and then use the asteroid's solar panels to control its descent through Earth's atmosphere. As to the getting back, she had no idea how, but rescuing her friends came first.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Neemea is subject to this a lot, despite her generally good nature. First, she twisted Serani's arm into kissing Kobatt so she could take a picture to send to Euboea to get her off Kobatt's back. Then, she also writes smut of her friends. She also has inadvertently insulted a few of her friends. She feels guilty about these moments, usually immediately after she realizes what she's done.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: She thinks that enough determination or boom can solve any problem.
  • Yaoi Fangirl
  • Yuri Fan

Serani Fortis

  • Blessed with Suck: While his ludicrous good fortune has gotten him out of many a scrape, he resents that it's made it impossible for him to ever play a fair game.
  • Born Lucky: Never lost a game of chance. Has gotten rich through gambling because of it.
  • Death Dealer: One of his two STRIFE SPECIBI is CARDKIND.
  • The Gambler: His title in Sgrub was "Bettor of Fortune".
  • The Gambling Addict: The very opposite of a debilitating case, as he always wins. You'd think people would have stopped challenging him by now, but you'd be wrong.
  • Improbable Weapon User: His second STRIFE SPECIBUS is DICEKIND. The dice are enchanted and depending on the roll have a variety of effects, good or bad, though due to his luck he always gets favorable results.
  • Smug Super: He knows his luck can't be beat, and he doesn't hesitate to show it off. Exhibit A: his trolltag, 'unbeatablPlayer'.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Kobatt.

Euboea Europa

  • The Beastmaster: Uses Babylususkind for strife. Or to put this another way, she uses the babies of her lusus to fight Pikmin-style.
  • Even Euboea Has Standards: Ignores blood caste when dealing with her friends and will generally do anything to help them. Also, by mutual agreement she and Moccus do not kill people in FLARP.
  • Gamemaster: Or the FLARPish equivalent. She was the Clouder for Team Worldshakers, her and Moccus' team.
    • Temple of Doom: Although her usual MO is tough but fair logic puzzles, she busts this out when particularly frustrated with being unable to beat someone.
  • Heroic BSoD: Underwent a bad one when her careless mistake caused the death of her moirail, Moccus.
  • He Is Not My Moirail: Refuses to accept that Moccus is her moirail or the fact that she even needs one.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Euboea is bitchy, manipulative, and clingy. And her first friends, the lusus babies she grew up with, keep leaving her when they get old enough.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Her success at this varies as she lets her own emotions get the better of her. Not for nothing was her character title "hot-headed trickster."
  • Parental Abandonment: From her lusus who spent more time having successive clutches of babies than taking care of either Euboea or any of the babies.
  • Posthumous Character: Has been dead since the RP started, along with seven other trolls. Revealed through flashback chatlogs.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Bitch-friends with Amorsa before they both died.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gets this from Moccus a lot and from others less often. A short list: for accidentally convincing Vertas to take up raiding, for getting Serani banned from FLARP, for hiring Entrop to kill Vertas, and for indirectly spreading the Serani/Kobatt picture.

Vertas Ganimi

  • Berserk Button: If you're of a higher blood caste, and you make life hell for the little people, be sure to do your best to hide it from him.
  • BFG: His airship has a few of these.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Over time, he becomes more violent in his raids.
  • Morality Chain: Moccus serves this purpose.
  • Posthumous Character: Dead since the start of the RP. His history and personality are displayed through flashback "pastchats".
  • Rant-Inducing Slight: When pressed by Euboea for his blood color, he finally gets fed up with the whole system and starts raiding the higher castes.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: His frightful descent upon blue-and-purplebloods who abuse their status and generally piss on the lower castes.
  • Secret Identity: Although he's really a purpleblood, he pretends to be a redblood.
  • Sky Pirate
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: He and Minera engage in FORBIDDEN PASSION. No one knows but them.
  • The Philosopher: When talking with Moccus about the blood system, they both turn into this trope rather well.
  • Tranquil Fury
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He fights for equality. By violently attacking abusive higherbloods and burning their homes and taking their stuff.

Minera Strigi

  • Bladeon A Stick: Her STRIFE SPECIBUS is allocated with the SPEARKIND ABSTRATUS.
  • Ditzy Genius: She is a masterful tactician, but puts her foot in her mouth without even realizing it with alarming frequency.
  • Fantastic Racism: A strict adherent of the caste system. It's just the way she was raised.
    • Fantastic Slur: Her calling Moccus a 'filthy gutterblood' when mad about his bugging her computer is what causes him to lose it.
  • Genius Book Club: Her palace is a lot like a giant library. She owns every encyclopedia ever written, including some she wrote herself.
  • Posthumous Character: Has been dead since the RP started, along with seven other trolls. Revealed through flashback chatlogs.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: She's practically a princess, and a firm believer in the blood castes, yet she engages in FORBIDDEN PASSION with Vertas, the highblood-raiding rebel.
  • The Strategist

Catlin Pelion

Heceta Scytal/Varuna

Orcuus Nokken

Ketura Ashvin

Sarati Antera

  • Naked on Arrival: When Hecata gives her a body by reordering history, Sarati shows up au naturel, thanks to weird reality shit, she somehow lost the clothes she would have had before.




Unnamed cavebeast (Vrigus' lusus)




  • Heroic Sacrifice: See CMOA above.
  • Taking You with Me: One of the reasons why Winky charged that last meteor- she knew she was going to die of the lusus plague soon anyways, and would rather die fighting than simply wasting away.


  • Cloudcuckoolander: She spends just as much time with her head in the clouds as she does actually looking after her charge.
  • Killer Rabbit: In the most literal sense. She's a giant rabbit, and can deal real damage in a pinch.

  • All Love Is Unrequited: He loved Jasami. Dauras loved him. None of the parties returned the others' affections.

Jasami Pongal

Dauras Scopas

  • Jerkass: Its mentioned that she's become bitter after Sgrub and isn't nearly as friendly as she once was.
  • Madden Into Misanthropy
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Some of her friends find her restoration of Corrin to life without Jasami morally reprehensible.

Hecatt Scytal

Ygrexe Ykrana

  • Super Senses: Namely, smell. But its only limited to blood pheromones.

     The Outsiders 

     The Ferns 





Doc Scratch





  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the former White King. He's also one of the best fighters the Ferns have.
  • Dating Catwoman: A variation. He's a high-ranking member of a criminal organization. His ex-wife is the head of a private security corporation. Neither are what one could call "good people".
  • Genius Bruiser
