The Osman Family


A young inventor, who primarily built Pilot out of spare parts in his garage. He keeps him around his adopted kids so Pilot can learn how to interact with humans.

  • Badass Normal: Unlike the other pilot characters, he's not exceedingly buff, has no robotic enhancements, doesn't have a full-time bodyguard to defend him, so on and so forth.
  • Happily Adopted: Not himself but he's an adoptive father to three: Cherry, Bhanuja, and Apollo.
  • Homemade Inventions: He created a fully-functional robot out of parts he found in his garage.
  • The Smart Guy: He's built at least two known robots and programmed ENDO.


Ellora is Danish's wife, and Bhanuja, Cherry, and Apollo's adoptive mother. She's one of the people who trained Pilot to fly.


Apollo is the oldest of Danish and Ellora's adopted children. Seventeen years old, he's considered to be more narcissistic than his siblings. He has a skin condition that makes the skin around his left eye lighter than the rest of his body.

  • Friendly Tickle Torture: He's weak against this trope, just like Ellora.
  • Geek: He loves medieval fantasy the most, and is a huge fan of Knight Wars. One comic showed him becoming friends with Felix because of it.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: Pilot uses these on him from time to time, and he simply can't resist giving in.


Danish and Ellora's adopted daughter. Bhanuja is a huge fan of the Deja and Nova show, and loves sci-fi in general. Often struggles in school.


The youngest of Danish and Ellora's kids, Cherry is still a young child. Almost nothing is currently known about her.

  • The Cutie: Being three years old, this was a given.
  • Cheerful Child: Believed to be one. In all but one of her appearances, she's been smiling. In the one she wasn't, she was more surprised than anything, while everyone else was terrified.
  • Meaningful Name: Cherry is one letter away from Cheery, which is how she's known to act.


Buddy is a robot who was built by Danish. He was created to act as caretaker of the kids, in the event that Danish and Ellora had to leave them home alone. Standing at knee-height, Buddy is among the smallest of all the characters in Pilot.

  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: According to Deo, he breaks the fourth wall on occasion. However, since the comic hasn't gotten far enough to show him yet, this remains an Informed Ability.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Yellow eyes, with green rectangle irises and no pupils.
  • Mundane Solution: The best way to make him be quiet is to just hold his mouth shut.
  • Overly Long Scream: He did this once. Whether or not it's common for him is unknown.
  • Robot Buddy: Of course.
  • Split Personality: The original concept art for Pilot said he had one, known as Comrade. The only way to tell the two apart is by looking at their eyes - if the irises are green and turned horizontally (like the page image), it's Comrade. If the irises are red and vertical like Pilot's, it's Buddy. The difference between the two is yet to be seen.
  • What Could Have Been: Early concept art for Buddy had him a lot larger - tall enough to be up to Pilot's shoulder. He was later shrunken down to around knee-height.


Sometimes you have to fall to be able to fly!

The main character of the webcomic, a ditzy low-class robot created by Danish. He was built to fly planes with his A.I. companion E.N.D.O.. He's extremely sweet but child-like.

  • Animal Motifs: Dogs.
  • All-Loving Hero: Once told Danish that he was going to fly up and be friends with the sun, but got really sad when Danish told him the sun would melt him.
  • Brain/Computer Interface: How he flies planes. He connects with the plane's piloting systems via a wireless access port on the back of his neck, allowing him to turn his attention elsewhere on the plane while he flies.
  • Clingy Costume: His hat is actually built into his body, and can't be removed.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Probably because he was a built out of spare parts, and not in an actual factory, Pilot is a little... off.
  • The Ditz: He tries to carry out conversations with plants, has to sleep outside at night because he tracks mud in the house, and generally isn't too smart.
  • The Empath: Pilot can read body language fairly well, like he'll know right away when you're sad, and he'll stay by you until you need a should to cry on.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: He's a robot built to fly planes.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Square, blood-red iris with yellow sclera and no pupil.
  • Funny Robot
  • Glowing Mechanical Eyes: He accidentally freaked out some of the neighbors when he was first brought online, since he can't turn the glowing off.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: Boy, does he!
  • Nice Guy: How nice? He broke down crying when he realized that grass was alive, since he thought he'd been stepping on an innocent creature.
  • Oblivious to Love: Artman doesn't even try to be subtle about having a crush on him, but Pilot never seems to notice.
  • Odd Friendship: Pilot is sweet, childlike, carefree, and asexual. His best friend Artman is depressed, gloomy, and hypersexual.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: Once used them on Apollo to get back into the house (as Danish makes him sleep outside). Luckily for him, Apollo couldn't resist.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Completely averted. His eyes are blood red, but you'd be hard pressed to find a nicer person.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Aside from his grey skin and yellow eyes, he looks exactly like a human.
  • Smug Smiler: This comic shows that he can be one smug robot.

Airport Employees


A sarcastic and snappy AI, who was created by Danish to help Pilot fly planes.


A one-eyed airport stewardess, who E.N.D.O. regularly flirts with. She occasionally teases liking him back, but her feelings for him remain a mystery.

  • Canon Immigrant: Was originally The Mangle/Toy Foxy in the AU.
    • In Name Only: The original was a broken-down animatronic fox who had accidentally been fused with Mr. Endo, while Mandy is a human woman who occasionally works with E.N.D.O.
  • Eye Scream: She somehow lost one of her eyes, and strangely hasn't gotten a robotic replacement yet.
    • The page image is actually the only time that she's ever been shown to have both her eyes. Whether this is before the incident that caused her to lose one of them or after she gets it replaced is unknown.
  • Robo Romance: Teased, but whether or not it will happen remains unknown.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Though it's actually dye. Word of God says that she has red hair.
  • Will They or Won't They?: With E.N.D.O.
  • Word of God: Mandy has schizophrenia, though how exactly this impacts her and what symptoms she has are unknown.

     Manis Units

These multi-colored robots serve as security guards in most airports. It's their job to prevent any roughhousing, mischief, or tomfoolery.

  • Abnormal Ammo: Their guns are loaded with rubber bullets instead of regular ones.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Justified, since they're robots.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despite their adorable exterior, they will NOT tolerate any rulebreaking at all. They can also pull off one heck of a Nightmare Face when enraged.
  • Bilingual Bonus: "Manis" is Malay for "sweet". Which is exactly what they were built to be.
  • Cute Machines: Were intentionally built to be cute and non-threatening to put people around them at ease.
  • The Empath: They can read emotions extremely well. It helps them keep an eye on suspicious people, yes, but they also comfort people who are feeling down.
  • Guns Are Worthless: Played with. Given their guns shoot only rubber bullets in place of regular ones, they can't kill you. However, rubber or not, they're coming at you fast. It's not their job to kill you, it's their job to incapacitate you until the police arrive. It also won't stop them from possibly causing severe injuries if they hit you in, say, the eye.
  • Killer Rabbit: They're a lot tougher than their cutesy name and appearance would have you believe.

Mahogany's Household

     Byron Brown

Byron Brown is Miss Mahogany's father, and the former head of an robot factory named Brown Industries. His incredible wealth and fame made him a target of the OB Mafia. Knowing that it was only a matter of time before he was assassinated, he hired Vendetta to protect his daughter. Byron died in an explosion set off by the OB Mafia.

     Miss Mahogany

Crying doesn't make you weak.

Vendetta's mistress, and the current head of one of the largest robotics companies in the world. She took over the company after her father was murdered. Because of this, she's one of the primary targets for the OB Mafia.

  • Always Someone Better: Mahogany's parents were both incredibly successful. Despite the facade that she tries to maintain, Mahogany feels inadequate compared to them.
  • Amicable Exes: With Venelop. They used to be dating, but broke up due to their age difference making things awkward. Despite this, they're still good friends.
  • Artificial Limbs: Her left arm from the elbow down was lost in an explosion, most likely caused by an attack from the OB Mafia.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Subverted. From what we've seen, Mahogany doesn't fight -probably because Vendetta doesn't want her anywhere near a fight. Regardless, she's still a pretty kick-ass lady.
    • Word of God has stated that she's being trained in martial arts, most likely in the event that Vendetta isn't able to protect her.
  • Blue Blood: The reason the OB Mafia targets her.
  • Canon Immigrant: You'd have to dig pretty deep to find it (She wasn't very popular back then), but Mahogany was originally from the AU. She was the daughter of Freddy Fazbear's manager, the mother of the fourth child, and Purple Guy's on-again, off-again girlfriend. Most fans agree that her retooling for Pilot is better than the original character.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: She is associated with the color Red.
  • Good Is Not Soft: She is one of the good guys in Pilot, although she seems to lean more towards Greyand Gray Morality. Regardless, Mahogany is definitely not soft.
  • Iron Lady: What she strives to be, given the expectations placed on her after her parent's deaths.
  • Lady and Knight: She's the lady, and Vendetta is her completely devoted knight.
  • Lady in Red: Her most iconic outfit is a strapless red dress.
  • Leitmotif
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Is this to Vendetta. She is his one and only friend and confidant. She is the love of Vendetta's life, and his only reason for living. She provides some much needed emotional depth to a man who would likely be completely hollow otherwise.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Downplayed. While she certainly has the figure and fashion sense down, she doesn't really do anything fanservice-y and seemingly the only person who has eyes for her is Vendetta. But still, dang.
  • Mythical Motifs: Dragons, being a tough, yet fair leader with a seemingly cold personality.
  • Real Women Have Curves: She isn't big enough to be considered a Big Beautiful Woman, but she isn't traditionally skinny either. She falls into a rather pleasant niche of having a somewhat thicker build while still being curvaceous.
  • Shrinking Violet: Despite appearing to be confident and in control, Mahogany suffers from a near-crippling social anxiety disorder. She hates social gatherings and talking to strangers, but as the head of a company she has no choice but to communicate.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: There is only one man in the world that Mahogany shows any sort of romantic interest towards, and that man is Vendetta. No ifs, ands, or buts.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: It is as clear as day that she and Vendetta love each other, but they have their own reasons for not pursing a relationship.


You can be a lover and a fighter.

Mahogany's butler/assassin/bodyguard/cat. A man of few words and fewer emotions, Vendetta lives only to serve the Miss and eliminate all who try to hurt her. He has a somewhat strained relationship with his family.

  • Aerith and Bob: His real name is Indian. His brother's name, "Vangel", is Greek, but their parent's names are Scarlet and Jay. It is possible these are just place-holder names, or pseudonyms they use while working at LG Productions.
  • Aloof Big Brother: Played straight and deconstructed. Vendetta hates Vangel, and doesn't see him as anything other than the naive brat who replaced him. When Vangel tried to reach out and make amends, Vendetta shot him down completely, making it clear that he doesn't want anything to do with him. Given Vangel's already existing trauma, chances are this will effect him later in life.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Although, given his real name, he may be Indian or a similar ethnicity.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: His complete and utter devotion to Mahogany, above even his own family members, points to him having Dependent Personality Disorder.
    • If not that, he probably is an emotional perfectionist. Emotional perfectionists feel as though they shouldn't express emotions such as anger, anxiety, jealousy or depression. They think they should always be rational and in control of their emotions, and are afraid of being exposed as weak or vulnerable.
    • He also shows some of the personality traits found in sociopaths.
      • Bones confirmed in a stream that he does indeed have DPD.
    • Some people suspect that he has Aspergers Syndrome, due to the fact that he seems to have trouble expressing his emotions verbally, is very rigid and clearly does care about people a lot.
  • Angsty Surviving Twin: He plays this role, as he used to have a twin sister.
  • Animal Motifs: As stated before, cats. He only shows loyalty and affection to one person (and apparently likes to be scratched).
  • Battle Butler: He's both a servant and a guardian for Miss Mahogany
  • Cannot Spit It Out: For a different reason than you're probably expecting; Vendetta is deeply in love with Mahogany, but doesn't tell her because he thinks his duty to protect her is more important.
  • Can't Live Without You: He has dedicated his life, mind, body, soul and heart completely to Miss Mahogany. Without her, his life literally has no purpose.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Vendetta is strongly associated with gold. Unlike the man Vendetta was very loosely based on, Vendetta's connection with gold is completely positive.
    • This might also represent how he's Deo's favorite character. He is their "golden boy".
  • Exhausted Eyebags: While not as bad as Vangel or Michael's, he does look like he could use a few extra hours of sleep.
  • Crossdresser: When he was a child, he wore dresses. Even as an adult, he wears a bow in his hair.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Downplayed. Vendetta is not the type of man who will squeal at the sight of a cat, but he adores them. He seems to have a weakness for small furry animals in general, given the fact that he adopted Chap, a one-eyed rabbit he found.
  • Covered with Scars: Recently confirmed that he has many scars, presumably from dealing with the OB Mafia.
  • Electronic Eyes: When he was 9, he had to have his birth eyes removed via surgery. Afterwards, he had them replaced with his set of mechanical ones, thus explaining why he has no pupils.
  • Excessive Evil Eyeshadow: More like 'excessive morally gray eyeshadow', but his eyelids are always colored a darker shade than the rest of his skin.
  • Handicapped Badass: To an extent. He was legally blind, but his prosthetics eyes fixed this.
  • Hidden Depths: He's not emotionless, he simply has a lot of trouble expressing himself.
  • Leitmotif
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Mahogany. He's the only person she will vent her insecurities and frustrations to, no matter how reluctant she is.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: Deo once answered an ask about why his eyes have no pupils, and claimed that it was because he specifically chose eyes with no pupils despite the doctors urging him to choose otherwise. Though whether this is canon or not is unknown.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: During an argument with Jay, Vendetta said some extremely cruel things to Vangel note , and almost smacked him, a nine year old, in the face. On top of causing obscene amounts of mental trauma to him, this caused him to gain a new hallucination: a huge, sadistic, cruel anthropmorphic cat who loves causing him psychological damage.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Only his family ever calls him Vendan.
  • Perma-Stubble: He always has a bit of scruff on his chin.
  • Parental Abandonment: Inverted and averted. From what we know, it was Vendetta who left his parents behind to stay close to Byron and his family. When he came back, Vangel had been born, and was completely smothered by Scarlet and Jay's love and attention. From Vendetta's point of view, his parents replaced him with a new son.
  • Renaissance Man: He's a man of many talents, ranging from hand-to-hand combat, weapon proficiency, psychology, house-keeping, and piano playing.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: He considers Mahogany a goddess among women, and doesn't think much of others who aren't her.
    • Justified since he's Demi.
  • The Stoic: In non-canon doodles Vendetta is shown to be snarky, a little mischievous, and his adoration for cats is exaggerated whenever the topic is brought up . In the actual comic, however, Deo has said that Vendetta doesn't display many emotions and rarely smiles.
    • Not So Stoic: He openly expresses anger around his father, though.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality
  • Token Minority: Both averted and played straight; He's one of the few known Hetero characters, but He's also one of the only known Demi characters, so it still counts.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Time will tell if it was just a moment of weakness or if he doesn't care about the age of who he fights, but he almost attacked Vangel, his nine year old brother.


Chap is Vendetta's pet rabbit. He appears to have been badly injured in the past, having bandages on his arm and leg, as well as missing part of his ear.


Miss Mahogany's robot maid. She has only appeared a few times, so little is known about her.

  • Canon Foreigner: Averted. Poptart was originally going to be the Pilot counterpart of Mangle, from the AU. However, Mandy was later created to take that role instead, and Poptart became a different character entirely.
  • Covert Pervert: Word of God says she's secretly a pervert.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Yellow irises and no pupil, and shaped like apostrophes (or half of a heart).
  • Robot Maid: One who belongs to Mahogany. How many others she has is unknown.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Since she's a robot, she's technically the only character whose natural hair color is pink.

The Schmidt Family

     Michael Schmidt

Who the FUCK cares about what others think of you. Whatever it is, youíre still in their mind and theyíre wasting their breath going on about you while youíre paying no attention to them. Ainít that fuckin peachy? Itís like the low budget edition of mind control or somethin.

Michael is a huge tough guy who works for the LAPD. He is ruthless and hates criminals with a burning passion. Interrogations with him are extremely rough and painful (for the criminals, that is). If you've broken the law and see him coming for you, pray, because that's all you can do.

That is Michael when he's doing his job. When off-duty, he pulls a complete 180 on his personality, becoming a sweet dad who loves his family. That isn't to say that he's not tough anymore, he still is, but he shows that, beneath all his muscle, there's a heart of gold underneath.

  • Awesome Aussie: Michael is Australian, but has been in America so long he's lost his accent.
  • Mythology Gag: A few years before the events of Pilot, he worked as a night guard for Byron's Manis Unit factory. During the night, a couple of defective ones tried to attack him. Michael had to defend himself until morning. Sound familiar?
  • Papa Wolf: It really isn't a good idea to say anything bad about Faith or Jerry when he's in earshot.
  • Pungeon Master: Of course.


Michael's spouse and Faith's adopted parent, Doll is a character shrouded in mystery. Doll has never made any appearances in Pilot or in doodles, and just about everything about Doll is up for debate.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Since we've never seen Doll's face or heard anyone in the comic talk about them, it's impossible to know their gender. Most fans think of her as a girl, but nobody knows for certain.
  • Canon Immigrant: Believe it or not, yes, Doll was a part of the Five Nights at Freddy's AU as well. In fact, Doll was the entire reason Mike took the job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza (he needed the money to buy a wedding ring so he could propose).
  • No Name Given: Doll is Mike's nickname for them, and their real name remains unknown.
  • The Faceless: Doll has never made a physical appearance at all.
  • The Voiceless: A fan once asked what Doll's voice sounded like. Deo then posted a video link to nothing but static.

     Jerry Schmidt

Jerry Schmidt is a Mintbot, a robot built to do chores around the house. Doll bought him to help Michael get over his Fantastic Racism against robots, though it doesn't seem to be working. He's programmed to act like a teenager, and is shy and anxious because of it.

  • Canon Immigrant: Of all the former security guards in the FNAF AU, Jeremy seems to have modified the most heavily, being changed from a shy human trying to save up for college who is friends with Mike to a shy robot who lives in Michael's house and is like a son to him.
  • Geek: HUGE geek. He loves manga/anime the most, to the point where many a fan (and Deo themself) refers to him as Weabot.
  • Obsessed with Food: Played for Laughs here. Nobody knows if it's canon or not, though.
  • Odd Friendship: The quiet, shy, and well mannered Jerry is friends with the obnoxious, arrogant, flirtatious Scott. How that even happened in the first place is anyone's guess.
  • The Faceless: He can display emoji, but other than that his face is a black screen with a neon green question mark.
  • TV Head Robot: His face is a computer screen. It often shows a question mark, but can change to an exclamation point when startled, along with various other expressions (always being some sort of emoji).

     Faith Schmidt

Faith is Michael's adopted daughter, and the youngest member of the Schmidt family. What happened to her birth parents is unknown, but she lives a happy life with her new family. She sees Jerry like her older brother, and loves playing games with him.

  • Canon Immigrant: She was originally the child who possessed Golden Freddy in the FNAF AU, but was modified for Pilot.
  • Gamer Girl: Faith loves video games, her favorite being Night Terror.
  • Happily Adopted: If she doesn't like being a part of the Schmidt family, she's never shown any signs of it.
  • Straight Gay: According to this post, Faith is a lesbian who will come out when she's 15 years old.


Originally, Captain was an untamed fox who lived out in the wild, but that changed when Michael hit him with a care. Mike took him to the vet, paying to heal him and replace his broken leg. Once the treatments were done, Michael decided that Captain was too adorable to get rid of, and adopted him.


Your life is a video game, and your downs are your checkpoints. Youíve gotten a high score, now keep going!

A fairly popular Let's Player on YouTube, and a huge nerd. He's also Michael's cousin. He own a massive amount of games, some of his favorites being Radiocative and Night Terror.

  • Artificial Limbs: His right arm is robotic.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Deo has said that Felix is smart enough to be a doctor, but he chooses to be a Youtuber instead.
  • Canon Immigrant: Based heavily off of Fritz Smith from the Five Nights at Freddy's AU, minus the unluckiness.
  • Fat and Proud: At the absolute least, fat and indifferent. He doesn't seem to care that he's overweight.
  • Geek Physique: He's fairly chubby.
  • Redheads Are Uncool: He has red hair, and is a huge nerd.
    • Not only is Felix a nerd, but this nerd is voiced by GhostyKnight who is also a nerd.

LG Productions


The ownernote  of LG Productions, and Charles's best friend. Zing may be close to Charles, but she hates The Pimpking and refuses to talk to him. She loathes Marissa for her abusive and obsessive behavior. Also an enormous troll.

Zing is the "owner"note  of LG Productions. She's a troll who loves to torment her fans.

  • Asian and Nerdy: She is of Chinese descent and an avid gamer. How could she be anything but this trope?
  • Benevolent Boss: She treats her employees well.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Zing has a cat named Radio, who was the main inspiration for Radiocative. She lets Radio roam the LG Productions building all the time. Word of God says that Zing would fight a hundred grown men to defend Radio.
  • Happily Adopted: Possibly. Her dad, Agent V, is homosexual and currently in a relationship with another man. This means that Zing is either outright adopted, or from a previous marriage (which could be considered "adoption" by V's new partner, so she could be adopted either way).
  • Teen Genius: Despite her youth she's in charge of LG Productions, and helps with the development process for all the games. She must have some serious smarts buried underneath her desire to troll the players.
  • The Not-Love Interest: She's extremely close friends with Charles, but they're not lovers at all. They're friends and coworkers, and nothing else.
  • Trolling Creator: Invoked. She loves to do this, going out of her way to murder fan-favorite characters solely For the Evulz, uploads crappy teasers when fans try to rush her (including a trailer for Night Terror 4, made entirely with sock puppets), and is generally a troll.
  • Younger Than They Look: She looks like she's in her early twenties at the least, but she's only eighteen.


Charles is a musician and concept artist for LG Productions. He's better known as the Pimpking (PK for short), who's his stage name, as well as his Split Personality. Charles is awkward and anxious, while Pimpking is bold and abrasive. He's one of Zing's closest friends.

  • Abusive Parents
  • Awesome Aussie: Zig zagged. Charles himself is awkward, anxious, and timid. Pimpking is much more bold, brash, outgoing, and isn't afraid to say what he thinks about people.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Charles is associated with bright yellow, whilst PK is associated with a more dark purple.
  • Electronic Music: The genre he's most known for.
  • Expressive Mask: Only in non-canon doodles. In canon, his mask obeys the laws of physics.
  • Men Don't Cry: Defied to hell and back. Charles despises this mindset, and dedicated an entire album to telling boys that there's no shame in crying.
  • Nice Guy: Despite his fame, and Pimpking's offensive personality, Charles is a very nice guy. One of the most noticeable examples is when Bhanuja tried to sneak into one of his concerts. When she was caught by security Charles stopped her from being thrown out, gave her backstage access and then sent her home with a free album.
  • Hypocrite: Pumpkins are his favorite fruit, and he's allergic to them. Does this stop him from eating things like pumpkin pie? Nope.
  • Shrinking Violet: Justified. Charles has been abused in one way or another for most of his life. As a result, he's soft-spoken and has a hard time putting his foot down. (Un)fortunately, Pimpking is able to pick up the slack.
  • Split Personality: Has one in the form of The Pimpking, his more confident (yet also more violent) alter ego.
  • The Faceless: All we've seen of his face is a silhouette, and in most of his appearances he is wearing a pumpkin mask.
    • Deo's friend Fetusmeme often asks streamgoers what they think his face looks like, since Fetus is the only person who's seen it so far.
  • The Not-Love Interest: With Zing. The question of whether or not they're a couple came up, and was dismissed almost as quickly. The two of them are best friends and co-workers, nothing more.


Scarlet's husband, and Vangel and Vendetta's dad. He's a voice actor for LG Productions. Among other characters, he provides the voice for Father Time. He's a bumbling idiot, but he's trying as hard as he can to be a good father to his kids. He regrets how bad a father he was to Vendetta, desperately wishing he could have done better for him.

  • Beyond the Impossible: He set a pool on fire; a pool full of water. He also did this to his cereal... After putting in the milk.
  • Bumbling Dad: Accidentally threw Vendetta out in a trash bag (luckily, he was unharmed). And accidentally mistook Vendetta for a bag of baguettes.
    • Hilariously enough, he actually has no qualms with admitting that he's dumb.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander
  • Epic Fail: Pretty much everything he does turns out to be this. They usually tend to involve fire.
  • Expy: Appears to be one of Spencer Shay. He does all he can to raise his family, but isn't very smart. He also sets a lot of things on fire.
  • Establishing Character Moment: "This isn't my son... THESE ARE BAGUETTES!"
  • Good Parents: Let's see. Acts obscenely hammy to make his son laugh? Check. Talks to his schizophrenic child's hallucinations? Check. Still tries to be nice to Vendetta despite his cold behavior? Check. Yep, Jay qualifies for this trope.
  • Hidden Depths: Underneath all the sunshine and quirky antics, Jay is very self-conscious and constantly wondering if he's a good enough father for his children. He doesn't seem to be entirely happy with how everyone assumes that he's just a bumbling idiot, and just wants some reassurance in his life.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Vendetta is a no-nonsense, quiet, and stoic man. Jay is almost the complete opposite.
  • Parents as People: While no one can deny that Jay is a good father when he's on the ball, he's not the most competent. Not even counting everything that's listed above, when Vendetta accuses him and Scarlet of replacing him with Vangel, it's not entirely wrong. Jay, in an uncharacteristic fit of frustration, claims that he just wanted a son who, in his own words, didn't act like a machine.


Scarlet is Vangel and Vendetta's mother, and Jay's wife. She works for LG Productions as a voice actor, mainly as Mother Nature. She's more quiet and reserved than her husband.

  • Big Beautiful Woman: Her size seems to change between doodles, but she always ranges from chubby to fat.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Landers Minder: It seems to be her job to keep Jay from accidentally burning down everything. Her success is varied.
  • The Conscience: As Vendetta and Jay's argument shows, she fulfills this role as well.
  • Eyes Out of Sight: Scarlet's eyes are hidden by her hair.
  • Good Parents: Everything said about Jay could apply to her as well.


Vangel is Scarlet and Jay's second son. He has schizophrenia, and intense auditory and visual hallucinations. Vangel is the youngest member of LG Productions, being only nine years old. Using advanced motion-capture technology, he provides Vinny's movement in all three Night Terror games. He also voices Vince and Vinny in Night Terror 3.

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: May be due to his youth, his schizophrenia, or the result of something else entirely. He rolls around the floor, puts his feet in his mouth, sits on Nugget's shoulders, and sticks his fingers in his tea (and later whines when they get burnt).
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: Whether or not they're just the way they look or the result of his hallucinations is unknown. They're Exhausted Eye Bags, since his hallucinations keep him from getting enough sleep.
  • Death Glare: Has a pretty great one here.
  • Hallucinations: Has these. The only one we know of thus far is an entity known as "Star", who Vangel refered to as a they.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Vendetta seems to think that Jay and Scarlet had Vangel to replace him. Jay's reaction nearly confirms it.
  • Trauma Button: Word of God says that, after the fight between Vendetta and Jay, raised hands seem to have become this. Even if it's in an innocent context, like asking for a high-five or reaching out for a hug. Though it does appear to be more minor than most uses of this trope, as he simply flinches.
  • Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises: He has these almost constantly.


The head of merchandising for LG Productions. She is Japanese and is always seen wearing a pair of cat headphones.


     Generic OB Mafia members

The lower-rank OB Mafia grunts, these robots exist to cause mayhem at the order of HP. They don't have actual heads. Instead, they have various other miscelanious appliances in place of their heads.

  • Always Chaotic Evil: So far, the only half-decent OB Mafia member we've heard about is Deleter.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: They pretty much always wear these.
  • Big Bad: Everything we've seen of Pilot thus far suggests they'll take this role. They murdered Schala, Byron Brown, and Mr. Shaffer's daughter, while also trying to kill Miss Mahogany, Schaffer himself, and various other important people. They also uploaded a virus into Bub and Chucks, causing a horrifying massacre that instilled a hatred of robots into thousands of people.
  • Fallen Hero: They were originally formed as the O-Brotherhood, a Robin Hood-like group of vigilantes. After Ace became the leader, they fell from grace and into crime. After HP took the helm, their transition to terrorist organization was incredibly fast.
  • Killer Robot
  • Mecha-Mooks
  • TV Head Robot: Most of them have these. The only known exceptions are Scott (who has an iPhone instead) and Ace (who has a radio).


A character created by Deo's friend, GhostyKnight. Deleter is the founder of the O-Brotherhood, and its first leader. He founded the organization as a Robin Hood-style group of vigilantes, stealing from the rich and giving to those in need. He left the O-Brotherhood for reasons unknown, leaving Ace in charge.


The second leader of the O-Brotherhood, and the person who began its fall into darkness. Ace was a power-hungry objecthead. Very little is known about him.

  • Badass Longcoat
  • The Ghost: Moreso than Deleter. We don't know very much about him, to the point that when the page was first created, there wasn't even an image of him to put here.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: As of now, Ace is the only known OB Mafia member to have a radio for a head. He also wears a Badass Longcoat instead of the OB Mafia's generic business suits. It also looks like he has no hands, though they could just be pockets. Ace is also the only OB Mafia member (and one of few Objectheads as a whole) who doesn't wear a tie.
  • Posthumous Character: HP murdered him and took control of the O-Brotherhood before the events of Pilot.
  • Unknown Character: Almost nothing is known about him.

     Heych Phe

I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not.

Heyche Phe (often shortened to just HP) is the current leader of the OB Mafia. After killing Ace and taking control, she further drove their reputation into the ground. She officially changed the name from the O-Brotherhood to the OB Mafia, finally making their transition from a group of vigilantes to a terrorist organization known.


Scott the iPhone Guy is an Objecthead. As of now, he's the only known one that doesn't work for the OB Mafia, instead working at an Apple store. Obnoxious and arrogant, most people tend to write him off as an annoyance.

  • Canon Immigrant: He was originally Phone Guy in the FNAF AU, tweaked and modernized for the plot.
    • In Name Only: Scott in the AU was a shy, nervous man who had an old turn-dial phone as a head. This Scott not only has an updated headnote , but is also very loud and annoying.
  • Catchphrase: "Oh yeah? And then what?"
    • '____________' also appears to be one.
    • "Rude"/"Fucking rude" tends to get tossed out a lot, always to people who have had enough of him and told him off.
  • Expressive Accessory: Whenever he has his messaging app open, it displays whatever he's saying and occasionally feeling.
  • The Faceless: Played with. While Scott doesn't have a human face, the screen of his iPhone works as one. It tends to have the messaging app open, usually displaying the iPhone Whale '_______' face.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Except Jerry, somehow.
  • Mythology Gag: One doodle has him saying "Hello hello?"
  • Nonstandard Character Design: He has an iPhone instead of a TV for a head, and wears a shirt and tie instead of the OB Mafia's typical business suit.
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently Michael has thrown Scott out of a window whilst playing Scrabble.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: To Pilot, since Scott is a phone. Whenever Scott's around, Pilot gets a migraine until Scott's put on airplane mode.
  • TV Head Robot: Though he's one of only two Objectheads whose isn't an actual TV, the other being Ace.

Schaffer's Casino

     Mr. Schaffer

Hearing, feeling, and remembering important moments in your life is just as important as seeing them.

Mr. Schaffer is the other of an as-of-yet unnamed casino. After being attacked by the OB Mafia, he lost his ability to see. However, it didn't stop him from running the casino (albeit with some help from Pops). He's currently in a polyamorous relationship, and has five wives.

  • Blind Mistake: Schaffer once talked to Pops while having his back turned to him. Ironically enough, they were actually having a conversation about having Pops help him avert this trope when it happened.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: The OB Mafia captured his daughter and held her for ransom. Being a wealthy man, Schaffer agreed to pay, but couldn't make it to the rendezvous point in time. The OB Mafia killed her, and then attacked him, causing his blindness.
  • Polyamory: He has five (currently unnamed) wives.


Recovery takes a long time, but it isnít impossible.

Artman is a robot who was created by a woman named Dr. Sherlina, along with five other robots who were his siblings. He was built to simulate human life as accurately as possible, and to be Sherlina's son. However, one of Sherlina's cousins made a deal with the OB Mafia, and they came to get him. Artsy and his siblings were saved by Mr. Schaffer, but scattered about. Sherlina didn't survive, leaving him all alone.

Now without his family, Artman became depressed. Almost all of his relationships went downhill, to the point he decided that romantic relationships weren't worth the effort and became the hypersexual robot we know him as today.

  • Canon Immigrant: Was originally a Mega Man character, prior to having his design changed and being moved to Pilot.
    • Even before that, he was Deo's imaginary friend from when they were five. This technically makes them the oldest character they have.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Oh, yeah.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Greeze.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: There's never a time he's not ready to do the do.
  • Never Bareheaded: Is never seen without his red beret. Ever. Unlike Pilot's hat, though, it's not built into his body and can be removed at any time. It's a memento from his mom, and he never takes it off to honor her memory.
  • The Not-Love Interest: With Greeze. They're both gay, and both extremely close, but they're not in love and are just friends.


Pops was a character designed by Charles for Radiocative 2, where he would have appeared as a mutated human. He was later scrapped, but Schaffer asked Charles for rights to his design, as he looked cool. Pops was instead re-purposed as an A.I. to help run Schaffer's Casino. He's rather organized, and is connected to the entire facility. He enforces the rules, gives customers information (including directions if they get lost), and generally keeps everything running smoothly.

  • Benevolent A.I.: He was specifically programmed to never want to take over for himself. Even if he somehow did, he can't leave the casino.
  • Canon Immigrant: He was originally a Minecraft character. He was created somewhere around 2011, making him one of Deo's oldest characters.
  • Interface with a Familiar Face: Meta example, as this is a recreated version of the original Minecraft character.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Played with - he usually isn't malicious. That said, in this one image he apparently murders an Objecthead while displaying solid red eyes.
  • Sapient Building: And Pops is the brain behind it!



Purrgatory is one of the many bands in the Pilot universe. Made up of two twin sisters, Lim and Ferasha, they make EDM music. Little is currently known about them.

  • Always Identical Twins: They look almost exactly the same, except for the fact that Ferasha is black and has white hair, while Lim is white and has black hair.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Purrgatory. In Spanish, gato means cat, so the whole cat theme still fits.
  • Cool Shades: In the one and only image of them shown, they have these.
  • No Name Given: Their real names are unknown.
    • Finally Averted with this post, which revealed the white skinned one to be named Lim, and the black skinned one to be named Ferasha.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: As far as we know, not personality-wise, but they are color-wise, as the outfit, skin and hair of one is a perfect inversion of the other's color scheme.


Hoodeany is one of the many musicians in the Pilot universe, most known for creating violin dubstep. He has currently only made one appearance, and little is known about him.

  • Dubstep: The genre he's most known for. Not just any dubstep, no, violin dubstep.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: Or rather, eye-obscuring hood. In the only image of him to be posted so far, most of his face is hidden by it.
  • In the Hood: Of course.



Weíre all imperfect, and one of the things that makes us that way is our desire to be perfect.

Countdown was created to be a security AI, but shortly after coming online, he turned against his creators and murdered most of them before escaping. Nowadays, he's in the process of creating himself a new body. He seems to like Artman...

  • Artificial Intelligence: Formerly. Even now, since his body isn't done yet, he can still return to his AI self to travel through the Internet.
  • Darker and Edgier: Literally. He has the darkest color scheme out of any robot seen thus far (even the OB Mafia members had lighter colors used for their heads, and wore white undershirts), and is covered in spikes and edges.
  • Gone Horribly Right: They tried to build an intelligent and calculating AI, but they succeeded far too well.
  • Grow Beyond Their Programming: Countdown became too smart to be contained and escaped, which is why he's now building himself a body.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Pretty much all robots who came before him had more rounded designs, making them look more cute and less threatening. However, since Countdown wasn't manufactured by any sort of company or built by a human, he has a far more sharp and threatening appearance than any other robot seen thus far.
  • Overly-Long Tongue: Complete with saliva...
  • Robo Romance: With Artman.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Having murdered his creators, he has no family.
  • Unnecessarily Creepy Robot: In-universe, since Countdown built his body himself, this was probably done on purpose.


Charles's sadomasochistic ex-girlfriend, Marissa is a deranged and abusive stalker with an extremely unhealthy obsession with Charles and The Pimpking.

  • Cute and Psycho: Just like real life abusers, she looks sweet and innocent, but is undeniably not how she appears to be.
  • Leitmotif
    • Internet Friends by Knife Party, which sums up her personality quite well.
  • Rape Leads to Insanity: Word of God is that she was constantly sexually abused when she was 10.
  • Stalking Is Love: She seems to think so, but it (rightly so) scares Charles to see just how obsessed she is.
  • Stalker with a Crush
  • Stalking Is Funny if It Is Female After Male: HIGHLY averted - her obsessive, abusive, and downright insane behavior is played for all the horror it's worth.
  • Yandere: Deconstructed with horrifying and heartrenching results. Given some of the terrible things she's done, the fact that she's not in prison is astonishing.


Billy is a classmate of Apollo and Bhanuja's. Very little is known about him currently, as he has only appeared on one page of the webcomic so far.

  • Canon Immigrant: Much evidence points to him being a heavily modified BB from the FNAF AU.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: In keeping with the original Balloon Boy. At the absolute least, Apollo can't stand him.
  • Shrinking Violet: He looks to be this way (all it took was one glare to make him immediately drop what he was talking about), though only time will tell.


A character only seen in doodles thus far, Jella is the future girlfriend of Vangel. Given that she only met Vangel when he was 18 (a full nine years after when Pilot takes place), whether or not she'll appear in the comic is unknown.

Jella and Vangel have been dating for an unknown amount of time, but hide their relationship from Jay, for fear that he'll react like he did when he found out about Vendetta and Mahogany. She's just a hallucination, and never really existed.


Vex is a robot created by the late Sherlina, the same person who created Artman. He was built to collect spare parts and junk, and then re-purpose the old pieces to create new things. However, after Sherlina's assassination, he lost all purpose in life and started roaming, collecting whatever caught his attention without caring if it belonged to people or not. After accidentally stealing a valuable jewelry box and briefcase, he was declared a wanted robot and went into hiding.


Indev is one of the refugee robots currently hiding from the law. He was created in a factory by nonsentient robotic arms, hence his odd appearance. He stole the AI chips from the place and ran off. Nowadays, he lives underground with the other rogue robots. Since he hasn't spent too much time around humans, he's still confused about how they work.


Venelop is a human who often visits INDEV's hidden shelter.

  • Amicable Exes: With Mahogany. They broke up due to their age difference, but are still good friends.
  • Covert Pervert: She's more than happy to donate her body to INDEV's studies. She steadily became less subtle about it as time goes on.
  • No Name Given: When she was first introduced, her name was simply Mystery Lady/"?". Her name was first revealed on a stream and kept a secret, before later being revealed.


A robot who is one of Artman's longest and closest friends, he is very protective of Artsy, and will do anything to cheer him up. He first met Artman over the Internet, but met with him in real life after his mom passed.

Left: Rusted and damaged. Right: Shiny and new.

An anxious robot who was thrown out of his home after postponing an order from his mistress to preserve his own existence. He's one of a mass produced model of customizable robots but was purchased with a learning AI. He was ordered to retrieve an item during a storm and offered to postpone it until after the rain passed, as water would damage him. The owner took it to mean Scooter was defective and threw him out.

  • Androids Are People, Too: Unfortunately, his owner didn't seem to think so...
  • Dramatic Irony: Scooter refused to go out in the rain out of fear it would rust him. Because of that, he got scrapped and thrown out... Leaving him alone in the rain, where he rusted.
  • Just a Machine: What his owner thought he was.
  • Nice Guy: He's sweet and shy.
  • Shrinking Violet: Around Artman, and presumably other people as well.
  • Three Laws-Compliant: Scooter could be considered a Deconstruction of the three laws. He followed them as best he could, but this ultimately would up getting him scrapped and thrown away, left on his own, and in terrible physical condition.


Omen was built to perform maintenance on a nuclear reactor. One day, in an attempt to kill Sherlina, Isaac caused a reactor meltdown, wiping out six nearby cities and killing everyone nearby. Omen survived, but was burned black with soot and left heavily irradiated. Now, it roams the destroyed wasteland, searching for survivors. It doesn't realize that anyone it comes close to suddenly stops moving...

  • Deadly Lunge: Omen will lunge at any moving thing it sees. According to Deo, it's more out of curiosity than malice, since it thinks that everything in the area is dead.
  • Living Motion Detector: The disaster destroyed Omen's eyes, but left its motion detectors intact. Now, it can only see moving things.
  • Poisonous Person: He's so heavily irradiated that even coming close to him will probably kill you.
    • Touch of Death: If coming close to him doesn't kill you, touching him invariably will.
  • Mind-Control Device: Isaac used one of these (similar to Yesman's) to control Omen and use him to cause a reactor meltdown.
  • The Wall Around the World: The irradiated area was surrounded by one to keep the radiation from spreading; Isaac had a hand in putting it there. Omen is now completely blocked in by the barrier, and considers it to be the edge of the world.
  • Just a Machine: Omen doesn't exactly have a personality, as he was only meant to be an assistant.


If ya can't beat 'em try harder, with a cleaver this time!

A robot made to be Daisy's "perfect" husband. While he appears nice and friendly, he isn't all what he seems...

  • Absurdly Dedicated Worker: He has four jobs.
  • Affably Evil: Zigzagged. While he's bigoted, hateful, and murderous towards humans, he cares deeply about robots. Everything he does is out of a desire to "save" robots from what he sees as oppression from humans.
  • Androids Are People, Too: He firmly believes that humans, or at least the vast majority of them, don't consider robots to be truly "alive".
  • Friend to All Children: Regardless of his views on humans, Norman considers children innocent of the "crimes" he believes humans are responsible for, and considers harming them off-limits.
  • Killer Robot: He became a killer, and wants to lead a revolution against humankind entirely.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: He's the most humanoid robot seen in Pilot so far, and most people he sees aren't even aware that he's a robot.
  • Robotic Spouse: Created by Daisy to be her husband.
  • Robots Are Just Better: A heavy believer in this, at least.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: It's implied by a few drawings that Norman might have once been a human, who was fatally injured and got revived by Yesman.

Cirque Du Automaton


A robotic ringmaster running the famous Cirque du Automoton. While he appears friendly to most, he's entirely different behind closed doors. He kidnaps people who try to join the circus, turning them into robotic performers through his gruesome experiments.


The former ringmaster in the circus and Yesman's mom.

  • Abusive Parents: Highly, highly averted. After Hocus' creator installed dual AI's into Hocus, Mary asked her to at least try to help him. After Dr. Sankaran refused, and threatened to have him scrapped, she went around to different scientists, trying to see if they could help him. When that didn't work, she did her best to care for him by talking to the separate AI's, up until her death.
  • Driven to Suicide: She committed suicide after the death of her girlfriend, leaving Yesman to lead the circus.

     Dr. Sankaran 
Hocus' creator, she's only showed up once, so very little is known about her.
  • Abusive Parents: Holy shit, is she! After Mary ordered a separate AI be implanted into him because he was too "dull" to be a performer, she told him that all his problems were in his head and that he should be thankful for it.


A sword swallower in Yesman's circus, she's Yesman's best "friend." Overall, not too much is known about her.

  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Is this with Yesman. He doesn't want a relationship, so they stuck with friendship. And Word of God says that she's aware of what Yesman does, but doesn't stop him because it wakes him happy.
  • Jerkass:
  • Yandere: While she seems to be very nice, she is actually obsessed with winning Yesman's affections, to the point of being abusive.

Night and Light

A robotic magician in Yesman's circus, who specializes in pyromancy. When he was first built, Hocus was very monotone, and was very simple mentally. His owner, Mary, thought that it would make him a bad performer, so she had a second AI added into his mind to make him more complex. He used to be very close with Yesman before Mary's death.

  • Artificial Intelligence: Unlike most robots in Pilot, he actually has two A.I.s instead of just one.
  • Covert Pervert: Averted. Since Light is very emotional, he can also be very lustful which can leak into Hocus' personality sometimes. Most of the time, Light's opposite; Night tones it down a ton. An example
  • Nice Guy: He's very sweet.
  • Playing with Fire: His main element is fire.
  • Sharing a Body: Hocus has two A.I.s instead of one; Night and Light. Night represents his logical and technical side. He is completely emotionless, talks based on facts and would rather wait for the right moment for the right action. Light represents his emotional and impulsive side. He is very emotional, talks based on what he is feeling and acts immediately on the spot without thinking. Unlike popular culture, these two rarely quarrel and do a very good job keeping Hocus stable.
  • Team Dad: Hocus acts fatherly towards almost everyone.
