This comic has Loads and Loads of Characters... But don't worry! There are several different themes, so most of the characters are restricted to just one theme... Most of the time...

    open/close all folders 


David Morgan-Mar

The creator of the comic himself has his own theme, usually revolving around working on the comic, his everyday life, his being on the run from Death...


This theme is mainly a spoof of Indiana Jones.

The Jones family

Montana (Monty) Jones

The main character of this theme. An Archaeology professor who constantly needs to fight against the Nazis to take control of powerful artifacts that the Nazis will use to conquer the world. Hates wurst.

Prof. North Dakota Jones

Monty's father. Obsessed with the Holy Grail.

Minnesota Jones

North Dakota's father, thus Monty's grandfather. Was presumably lost after he went on dinosaur chasing.

  • Overly Long Name: His title? The Honourable Herr Schliemannian Chair Professor Doktor Doktor Jones, CBE, DCM, JP, FRS

The Nazis

  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: Nazi science sneers at [thing to be sneered at]! Sometimes the science part is changed too.

Colonel Haken

Monty's archnemesis. Hitler-brain-in-a-jar's primary lackey when it comes to gathering powerful artifacts.


Haken's main lackey. Is not really as committed to the Nazi principle as others, thus is a bit more reasonable.

Hitler's Brain

Hitler's Brain in a Jar. Need I say more? Anyway, he died in the Reichstag fire and his brain was put on life support by Adam Savage to win a Bet With Death. Plans to take control of powerful artifacts and take over the world.



The Jones family's Arabic friend who will always come to their rescue.

Ginny Smith

A US archaeology expert who defected to the Soviets. Can and will backstab everyone.


Agency of Deaths and the main point of Crossover.

Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs

Probably the main character of Death theme. Has really bad luck on the job. Has been the Death Of Being Sat On By A Giant Frog, Fate Worse Than Death, Death Of Being Stared At Angrily By A Giant Frog, and Death Of Being Run Through The Spleen With A Toothpick.

  • Butt-Monkey: Gets who get job shuffling the most?
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Really popular.
  • George Jetson Job Security
  • Reassignment Backfire: He could lead the Deaths' Strike without being drawn to do his job because at that point, he had been demoted to Fate Worse Than Death, and as such was no longer a Death. The Head Death ends up breaking the strike by rehiring him as Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs.
  • Sinister Scythe: He uses one, made by cutting one blade off a lego pickax.

Death of Choking On A Giant Frog

Fireballs's competitor, since he wanted to be Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs, but otherwise friendly to each other. Apparently he originally died when an aide of his shoved a giant frog down his throat.

Head Death

The boss. He is in charge of the Deaths' positions, and will demote and promote the lesser Deaths based on their performance. Really hates the Paradox Department.

Death of Being Wrestled To Death By Steve

The Death responsible for collecting people who've been wrestled to death by Steve. Wears a cowboy hat and a green cloak.

Death of Inhaling Hatmaking Chemicals

The Death responsible for collecting people who died by mercury inhalation. He doesn't get much work nowadays, although he gets to collect the Mythbusters (they get sent back, however). He speaks in a cockney accent, and wears a top hat because "the class system's dead".


The Ferryman of the Underworld, but there is no indication of how does he fit into the organization.


An RPG campaign that is a big spoof on Tolkien.


The group's merchant. Highly protective of his money.


The group's elf and archer. Also the Only Sane Man of the group.


The group's thief. But never call him that.


The group's wizard. A pyromaniac wizard that frequently kills off his teammates.


A lizardman hired by Lambert to help with the group (and protect his money from Mordekai).


Your old stereotypical dwarf with Scottish accent. Got persuaded to join the group by Kyrosâi, by predictable method.


Originally a sci-fi campaign with the same players as fantasy, but eventually grew into its own story about a group of interstellar merchants on the Legacy. They get stuck in cyberspace a lot.


A rat-like alien, and the one who does most of the actual 'merchanting' on the ship. He's very greedy and has a penchant for bad ideas.


The ship's pilot. Was dead for a while.

  • Death Is Cheap: Constantly subverted. She could come back via cloning, but her crewmates keep accidentally screwing up her chances. She eventually comes back as a ghost, and then is brought back to life when the universe is destroyed and then recreated.
  • Gender-Blender Name: In the campaign the Space theme was based on, Paris's player intended her to be male (and named after Paris of Troy), but everyone else assumed her to be female, and the player went with it.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: As a ghost, she was partially transparent, insubstantial, and glowed in the dark. She could interface with the ship's controls to pilot it.

Iki Piki

The ship's scientist and diplomat.

  • Bizarre Alien Biology: His species' reproduction involves budding and spores. And the GURPS species he's based on is even weirder. It involves gender-bending every few days.


The Legacy's engineer.


A tree alien that Spanners has hired as his assistant.

  • Meaningful Name: Quercus is the genus containing the various species of oak tree.
  • Plant Aliens: He belongs to a species of tree beings from the planet Fagalia that apparently reproduces the regular plant way, through flowers and seeds.


    Franchise/Harry Potter 
Exactly What It Says on the Tin, but later the theme is mostly in William Shakespeare's fanfic.

Harry Potter

Hermione Granger

Ron Weasley

Draco Malfoy

    Imperial Rome 


A Roman senator.

  • Consummate Liar: Pinpoints this as the number one skill needed to be a senator.


Aspiring Roman senator. Cousin to one Gaius Julius.

    Steve and Terry 


A herpetologist who loves getting up close and personal to dangerous reptiles- and then wrestling them. Has wrestled crocodiles, snakes, a shark, and Cthulhu.


Steve's wife and voice of reason.


"Mighty Cthulhu is one of the Great Old Ones, an Elder God who lies in eternal deathless sleep in the sunken nightmare city of R'lyeh. Even being aware of his very existence is enough to push strong men to the brink of insanity. Not that that would ever stop Steve."-Irregular webcomics character description

Charity Collector Guy

"Hi, I'm campaigning for greater community awareness of trigonometry."

A guy who regularly volunteers to collect money for a variety of unusual charitable organizations. Even volunteers as a subsitute Death briefly. Also an expert in origami and astrophysics.

  • Almighty Janitor : His aforementioned unusual combination of expertises make him very helpful in one of the latest attempts to reboot history
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: A lot of his appearances have this as the joke.

Jane Goodall

Cryptozoologist turned primate researcher and reluctant ally to Steve. She's in touch with the Yeti.

  • Expy: Of the real life Dame Jane Goodall.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Very often. Especially when confronted by Steve.

     Nigerian Finance Minister 
A spoof on the 419 Scam, focusing on the actual guy in charge of the Nigerian treasury, with legitimate requests that never work out because they look almost exactly like the classic scam.

Nigerian Finance Minister

The beleaguered finance minister of Nigeria. Often tries to use e-mail to implore foreigners to help transfer money, with little success.

  • 419 Scam: What people think he's doing when he sends them e-mails, despite being entirely sincere. Ironically, he himself falls victim to a guy claiming to be the king of Nigeria, despite Nigeria having been a republic since its independence.
  • Beleaguered Bureaucrat: Nobody helps this guy do his job.
  • Cassandra Truth: Nobody he sends his e-mails to actually believes that he's not a scammer.
  • Sincerity Mode: The heart of all his gags- he's what would happen if those scam e-mails really were from the Nigerian government.

A spoof on The War of the Worlds, but gets veered into different direction lately.

The Martians

The last 3 Martians who still plans to conquer Earth, but pretty inept at it.

  • Last of His Kind
  • What an Idiot!: Don't care about the germs and don't give your species immortality treatment before sending them to invade Earth? Why not?

The Man in Black

The shadowy government operative who denies everything out of natural.


An ordinary university student who got himself tangled into the Martian mess quite often.


Owner of a local pizza place where Ishmael works.

  • Near-death by Irony: Claimed to be descendant of Allesandro Volta when rewiring his pizzeria. Guess what happens next.

The Allosaurus

A dinosaur that showed up in several themes. Was eventually elected President of the United States, after which he showed up mostly in the Martians theme.


A spoof on James Bond.

James Stud (0x0a)
