The High Seas

An indie band situated in Seattle, founded by Max and Chloe about a year after the events of Life Is Strange. For tropes pertaining to Max and Chloe themselves, click here.

    open/close all folders 
    In General 
  • Five-Token Band: The band is very diverse. Aside from Max and Chloe (two sapphic white women who may or may not be romantically involved with each other, further differentiated by one being a meek hipster and the other rebellious and punky), the band has two African-American members (one man and one woman), a sapphic Muslim woman, and a final member who is implied to be a trans man.
  • Mythology Gag: The band and its aesthetic are inspired by Max and Chloe's fondness for pirates in their youth.



The band's singer.



The band's guitarist.



The band's keyboardist.

  • Transgender: He reveals that the name "Dex" isn't short for "Dexter" or any name, really, instead being a name he chose for himself. He also mentions having "another life" at some point before, wanting to leave it in the past and focus on the now. This very heavily implies that Dex was assigned female at birth.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair: Or, green, as shown in an alternate timeline.
  • Youthful Freckles



The band's drummer.

  • Ambiguously Gay: She writes a love ballad about Max and Chloe and becomes flustered when quizzed about it. The ensuing conversation makes it pretty clear that she has a crush on one of them (maybe even both), but it's never made clear whether she's out to her bandmates, or even if she's been interested in women before.
  • Twofer Token Minority: Threefer, really: Pixie is a sapphic woman who appears to be of Middle Eastern descent and observes at least some elements of the Muslim faith.


A mysterious young man Max encounters after her move to Alternate Universe Los Angeles in the second and third comics arcs.
  • Hero of Another Story: His discovery of his superpowers is at least as interesting as Max's and Daniel's, especially what he does in the several months afterwards which is barely touched upon, but it's not as significant to this story as what he does after he meets up with Max.
  • Invisibility: Like Max and Daniel, he has a super power (no points for guessing which one).
  • Perception Filter: Technically how his power works, rather than true invisibility. He's still visible to himself and to other powered people like Max (and possibly Rachel).
  • Psychic Nosebleed: Just like with Max, overtaxing his powers can cause one of these.



The owner of the café in Santa Monica where Max, Chloe, and Rachel hang out. He's also friends with the High Seas, which serves to re-introduce the band into the Alternate Universe in the second and third arcs.
  • The Bartender: Actually a café owner, but he serves much the same purpose in the story, right down to his constant low-level exasperation with the main characters and their friends.


The owner of the auto repair shop where Chloe works in Alternate Universe Los Angeles in the second and third arcs.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's just about the only original character in the comics who isn't broadly a contemporary of the main protagonists. He lets Chloe work on her art projects in the shop, and is generally pretty chill about her friends hanging out on his property a lot of the time.
  • Satellite Character: He doesn't really have much characterisation beyond "being Chloe's supportive boss".

How well does it match the trope?
