His current occupation is working as a drug trafficker, aswell as a wealthy businessman.
  • The Alcoholic: Liquor is like his best friend when he's inside the building. Black Mask is never seen without one bottle of it. Too bad this was the reason why it lends the killer an advantage of incapacitating him.
  • Asshole Victim: He's killed via gasoline then fire by the killer. Being an asshole from the start, he never got to redeem himself.

  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: The events of all the rest of the killings have been traced back to the first voting election. Had he didn't convince the others Knoll wasn't the killer and didn't vote for Poinxsquad the killings would have stopped because Knoll was the killer.

     Pvt. Smith Johnson 
Age 20, he had a less than exemplary performance in school, and constantly failed all his classes in English and Drama, as well as in the social arena, constantly being awkward by making random, unnecessarily loud and profound exclamations. Though his mother often claimed he just had stiff bones, Pvt. Johnson merely chose to walk and run like his solid insides were held together by a collection of metal pipes, never seeing the need to hold his arms out further than by his side most of the time. Though he had endured enough teasing and bullying to make any sane person crack up, Smith Johnson was no more or less mentally challenged when he left school. His meaning in life seemed clear instantly to him. He joined the United States Marine Corps, and had an average training experience before he was inducted. He passed the 100m obstacle course with a fairly mediocre time of 3 days, 6 hours and 32 minutes. He found a place in the world where his profound shouting was not only useful, not only accepted, but amongst a joined chorus every time an insurgent tank did a spontaneous 180 panic spin 100 meters away on the hill. Smith Johnson has seen some shit, but now he's on leave. His current occupation is being a rifleman in the USMC.

Born on the 4th of July, 1988, he was born with a generic name to a normal American household to a wealthy family. He lived as a patriotic child until his 15th birthday when he learned his father's corporation was actually attempting to use the US government to create a New World Order. He therefore fled from home, changed his name, and gave up everything from his old life. Until the age of 20, he committed various terrorist acts around the country and was somehow never caught by authorities. It was then, he discovered the internet and realized his physical acts of terrorism were outdated. He realized that making conspiracy theorist websites was a much more productive method of getting the truth out and has been doing so ever since. His current occupation is being a political activist.

His age is something only "Lucille" knows. Little is known about Negan's past, save that he ran a group of post-apocalyptic survivors known as the "Saviors" and possesses a particular bond with "Lucille", a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire. The implications of this bond are slightly disturbing, though mentioning this to Negan would be unwise. He has a rather colorful grasp of the English vocabulary and a certain tendency for violence when the situation calls for it. His current occupation is being the leader of the "Saviors".

     Kenny Wallace 
Age 49, he is a redneck truck driver. He aspired to become a country musician, but this never surfaced, making him become bitter and cynical.

His current occupation is being an trucker.

     Bear Grills 
His age is unknown for some reason. He is an extremely handsome human male with a love of outdoors and fish.

He does, however, like grilling up fish and having barbecues by the riverside. He suffered an accident years ago however, so he has a really bad speech impediment that makes him sound like a growling bear, absurd innit? His current occupation is working as a fry cook.
  • Nice Guy: Offers free grilled burgers to everyone.

One day, he received a letter by a specific guy from Alaska, wishing to pay him an abundant amount of money to sign up on a suspicious website. Max asked him why should he do so, the specific man replied "Something is awfully wrong about these adverts. Think about it man. Bill Clinton suddenly appearing alive after the rumors appeared. They don't add up, I've see you on the internet before, I know you can find solve this problem just like the fiasco in Sao Paulo." Max agreed to investigate, taking a trip to Alaska.

     Uncle Ruckus 
Somewhere between the ages of 66 and 72, he is a black man who firmly doesn't like black people - the world's biggest "Uncle Tom". An overweight, horrid, detestable homely man with one oversized glass-eye, he enjoys disassociating himself from other African Americans as much as possible, and is outspoken in his support of what Huey calls the "white supremacist power structure." He is repellent in appearance, behavior, and attitude. He has an intense hatred of anything pertaining to black people, and goes out of his way to free himself from this identity. Ruckus claims God says the path to forgiveness for being black is to rebuke your own race. Ruckus champions the small traces of Native American, French, or Irish ancestry he claims to have (all of which are completely non existent), and wishes that all black people were still enslaved. He spouts white supremacist rhetoric and calls Michael Jackson (who suffered from the pigmentation disorder vitiligo) a "lucky bastard", as he no longer looks black. Uncle Ruckus claims that he himself has "re"-vitiligo, to explain his own skin tone. During the Civil Rights Movement in 1959, when he was 20, he protested against Martin Luther King's marches, and would occasionally throw bricks at him, but usually missed. Perhaps Ruckus' most famous quote was “I’d shot you myself, but I realized the white men got better aim". His current occupation is that he "worked more than any nigga would".

He is the natural enemy of the Daleks and Cybermen.

He has served the Black Templars chapter with distinction for a considerable period of time and typically takes the fight to the enemies of the Imperium of Man as part of a Crusader squad. He shares the common Black Templar characteristic of fanaticism and belief that the Emperor of Mankind is a God, and will not stand for it being questioned. In 999.M41, during the Crusade Fleet's warp transit, a section of the 32nd deck Jeremias happened to be in experienced a Warp Anomaly, dragging everything present into a portal. Jeremias woke up in the 21st century in the middle of a scorched crater in Alaska, smouldering corpses of 41st millennium servitors and chapter serfs around him as he slowly rose, his power armor smoking and mildly scorched. His weapons, fried and destroyed by the Warp event, were useless, so Jeremias abandoned them, and walked away from the crater in loud strides not unusual of a Space Marine. The optics on his MK7 helmet were seemingly dysfunctional, so he ditched it as well, unsubtly throwing it away. His current occupation is being a fanatical Space Nazi in power armor, being part of the Black Templars Space Marine.

     R.L. Mundy 
Approximately age 35, he's not a crazed gunman, he's an assassin, mate. Everyone in his hometown used to think he was a trophy hunter, but rumors started to slip up. Something of a pariah in his own country, he's a dinkum Aussie (forgetting he's actually a Kiwi), not some bloody cartoon, regardless. He's also a life-long bachelor, as can be deduced from his general hygiene habits. Hobbies include drinking decaf, pissing in jars, sleeping in the corpse of a water buffalo tougher than you and being able to quote Chopper despite being from the wrong decade.

His boredom got the better of him and he was recruited by some big dumb american to join some space samurai. Scotty said "you guys are boring" and went into a deep sleep. Upon reawakening, he joined a clan of brave explorers and discovered that his new house was literally three hops away from the samurai the he abandoned. That was pretty awkward. He blew all $300m on spaceships. His current occupation is a spacebum, feeding on cult-like vermin for a living, formerly being the successor to a long line of space-electricians.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Scotty Wirer got weary of the three leaders once they started accusing others, talking to the other players that one of them is the killer. When he starts getting involved he suddenly gets killed by the murderer.

McCoy was assigned to investigate Murder at Midnight after his superiors saw the potential to spread to the world the greatness of their "organization", and in turn, receive additional funding for weapons, gadgets, and costumes. Roy himself sometimes believes that he's the actual cartoon character himself, and he excels at using bludgeon type weapons, and making the most preposterous of deductions as a result. His current occupation is working as "a spy", "an assassin" and a henchman.

Manufactured on 23rd of September, 2112 by Mutsashabi Robot Factory, Noraemon is a sentient android.

     Leroy Jenkems 
Born on the 10th of March, 1974, real name Alvin Feigenbaum, he is a diagnosed schizophrenic, who lives under the delusion that huffing your own fermented shit-gas creates any discernible effect other than shit-breath Beyoncé could only dream of. He used to be an avid scientologist who, not only a believer in reincarnation, also tried to publish Jenkem recipe books; eventually, one publisher fortunately called the authorities and he was admitted into a mental hospital, where he was restrained in a straitjacket to prevent him from trying to ferment his own waste. But now, Mr. Feigenbaum has escaped, and he's eager to "advocate" Jenkem again (as in "never shutting up about it"). His current occupation is being a Jenkem enthusiast. Below is the biography of who Alvin thinks he is, Leroy Jenkems:

"Born on the 9th of November, 1888, as a tough street kid wandering through the streets of Whitechapel, sniffing glue, he looked for other ways to get high, eventually stumbling upon Jenkem. He spread the word about Jenkem, eventually becoming a Jenkem lord and dying of an overdose at the tender age of 11. The "ultimate trip", Jenkem became the light of his life, providing a trip that is the life of one's life, a trip in which one will meet their ancestors - who will probably scold you for your shit-huffing ways - but never-the-less, a trip that removes the darkness from life. Despite dying of an overdose, Leroy realized that Jenkem is the number-one thing in the world, and has since devoted the lives of his many reincarnations to the business of Jenkem."

He received a warm glow in his processing cores at the thought of hunting an unidentified meatbag the droid would need to determine before he neutralized.

     Fredric Mc Narin

Despite glowing an odd shade of green, he was not content to leave behind his investigation work, so he started his own freelance agency, calling himself "Glowstick". Even with his bright complexion, Fredric is still a very discreet and able investigator. His glowing complexion actually seems to help the business, funnily enough. His current occupation is working as a Freelance Investigator.

Existing since the Los Iluminados uprising, *he* or perhaps another one was the product of a human and insect fused with the implantation of Plagas. He was just a spare B.O.W. needed until the call came. Its brethren were presumably killed by a blonde pretty boy along with the organization it stood for in 2004. He seeks a new purpose in life as he travels throughout the world from Spain to the United States, believing it to be the one his masters wanted to seek revenge on.

     Robust McGee 
Having been born way into the future, a man, a clown, a legend. Robust McGee has spent years on the decks of Space Station 13, working his way up from a lowly honkling to Supreme Clown Commander with naught but sheer dedication and the intuition to overcome the obstacles in his climbing of the ranks (though those telecrystals the men in red suits gave him helped a little). However, one work shift too many left him fleeing the station with a 'requisitioned' hand tele and EVA suit after the former, deposed Captain took offense at his annexation of the station with a HONK mech and set the AI's laws to kill him. Lucky for him, the hand tele opened up a rip in time which allowed him to travel back to the present day, and so here he is, to unleash his will upon the universe once more. Just another day on the job for Honkin McGee.
