     Irene 

Irene Baker

"Oh, can I do one more? Ten's my favorite."

A timid and kind woman who is very skilled at HR and occasionally hosts of the spirit of a thunder goddess. She works in Humanity. Played by Justin.


  • The Ace: Irene is the best... at Human Resources.
  • Adorkable: Irene was a big fan of the Do-Good Fellowship even before they hired her. She has even memorized the 24 questions and can review them by heart.
  • Foil:
    • To Nadiya. Both of them are very dedicated to their work and tend to fixate on it even when they should be relaxing, but while Irene's work brings her closer to people Nadiya tends to push people away. Also while Irene is shy and timid but chooses to work with people anyway, Nadiya has no trouble communicating with people but despises doing it. Lastly, when they need to get people to work together Irene befriends them while Nadiya threatens her enemies into submission.
    • To herself as Kardala. While Irene is friendly and open and values people, Kardala views herself (not unfairly) as a deity among mortals, and sees her work as a superhero much like being a shepherd.
  • The Heart: Irene is dedicated to helping everyone to get along. Unfortunately, Kardala is... not.
  • Stealth Pun: The Aspect that allows Kardala to randomly revert into Irene is called On Comes Irene.
  • Super-Powered Alter Ego: Irene doesn't have any powers on her own, but she can become a host to the goddess Kardala.
  • Two Beings, One Body: She and Kardala are vaguely aware of what the other is doing while they are unconscious.

The Goddess Kardala

"I DEMAND MEAT!"

Irene's alter-ego, a deity walking among mortals.


     Nadiya 

Nadiya Jones

"Is this mandatory?"

A brilliant scientist who has something more important to be doing. She works in Research and Development. Played by Travis.


  • Anti-Hero: Nadiya has no problem bullying people into submission or holding innocents hostage, and she puts Richard in the path of a heat vision blast to save her own hide during her fight with Martine. She even suggests leaving both of them to die on the sinking Berg.
  • Berserk Button: Assuming that her favorite movie is Flubber or Nutty Professor II: The Klumps. note 
  • Deadpan Snarker: Nadiya has a very dry, sarcastic sense of humor. It comes out a lot when she feels that people are wasting her time.
  • Foil: To Irene. Both of them are very dedicated to their work and tend to fixate on it even when they should be relaxing, but while Irene's work brings her closer to people Nadiya tends to push people away. Also while Irene is shy and timid but chooses to work with people anyway, Nadiya has no trouble communicating with people but despises doing it. Lastly, when they need to get people to work together Irene befriends them while Nadiya threatens her enemies into submission.
    • Nadiya is also a foil to Travis's character in the Balance arc, Magnus. Whereas Magnus is The Big Guy defined by his physical aptitude, and his occasionally foolish altruism, Nadiya is a brilliant, and morally dubious, scientist who cares far more about the "greater good" than any individual. Prior to gaining her superpowers she's never described as particularly physically adept, and afterwards she is easily tired out after using her powers.
    Nadiya: Rushing in isn't really my thing. Um... yeah, you know what? Nadiya's good out here.
  • Guile Hero: Nadiya prefers manipulation over brute force. In the mixer she intimidates an uncooperative coworker into giving her information, she is the first to suggest playing along with Richard and Martine to wait for an opening, and she tries to hold Richard hostage to get Martine to back down.
  • Not So Stoic: Nadiya is easily flustered by Remy's antics, especially when he describes the Stimplant process as a "skin cocoon."
  • Organic Technology: Nadiya's speciality as a scientist.
  • Science Hero: She's a genius in biochemistry and biotechnology.
  • Shapeshifter Weapon: She can turn her arms and legs into any weapon she can imagine.
  • The Spock: She prioritizes logic over emotions.
  • Weak, but Skilled: She can't hit as hard as Kardala, but her Voluntary Shapeshifting gives her more options and better flexibility.
