The Prying Hackers involves a lot of colourful characters. Read about them here.

Session Trolls

All Characters

  • Alien Blood: Being trolls, they each have a different color of blood. All across the rainbow, too.

Agatha Heiter

Your name is Agatha Heiter, and your occupation has saved many lives. Don't ask how many have been killed for that knowledge...

transcendentAsclepian was a living rarity - a doctor from Alternia. Whilst normally soft-spoken, she has the tendency to snap. She ascended to the God Tiers after her illness got the better of her.



  • Beware the Nice Ones: Fail, and you might get killed.
  • Incurable Coughof Death
  • Blood from the Mouth
  • She's Got Legs: This was pointed out by Jezron after he was done going batshit insane attacking everyone with whatever he could find in her hive. He later apologized to her for making a mess out of one of her rooms and for the comment about her legs.
  • Combat Medic: Agatha carries syringes as her main weapon, with syringe guns and a more recent syringe rapier. This is a doctor you do not want to mess with.
  • Empathic Healer
  • Healing Hands: Agatha is the Duchess of Mend. After she ascended to her god tiers, she was able to heal others by transferring their injuries on to her own body.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: Agatha had an ex-matesprit. Had. She almost killed him in self defense when he attacked her. She then proceeded to perform various experiments on him, and ultimately dissected him.
  • Advertisement:
  • My Greatest Failure: What, were you expecting her illness to be genetic? When she was about four sweeps old, she experimented with a toxic chemical on herself. This is what caused her illness. This also caused her to follow in the footsteps of her ancestor, Practitioner Ophanine, who died at a young age because she experimented on herself as well.
  • Follow in My Footsteps: Agatha, although she tried not to, ultimately followed in the footsteps of her ancestor.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: There will be no thigh-highs here. A young female highblooded troll must dress appropriately.


Alcippe Zlotah

Your name is Alcippe Zlotah, and you're a thriving businesswoman. Zippy Zlotah's delivers to trolls all across Alternia!

highwayMonster was an engineer from the desert, servicing FLARP players by providing them with weapons. She recently entered the game after Jezron's death, proving herself to be an asset with her mechanical knowledge.


Aragua Heyler

Your name is Aragua Heyler, and you have a very important job to do. If you fail, all of Alternia will fall to the might of the horrorterrors...

darkAtlantis is loud, direct, and touchy — which is just what happens when you're isolated in a swamp for most of your life. Before she entered the game, she spent most of her time warding away the horrorterror influence she felt in the swamp - a duty she felt was of utmost importance.


  • Alien Geometries: The swamp she inhabited always began to get rather warped the closer you got to the center.
  • Ascended Extra: She spends a good part of the game just supporting Sototh.
  • Berserk Button: Pallida hits it when she tells Aragua her very blase stance on rape.
  • Blood Magic: Not really magic per se, but she believed her rich, high-spectrum blood would help keep the horrorterrors at bay if she spread it around.
  • Cassandra Truth: Turns out all that nonsense she spewed at visitors about eldritch monsters trying to break through into their dimension was true! Sort of.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: She was more prone to this when alone and sleepless for weeks.
  • Cuddle Bug: Due to spending most of her life starved for physical contact.
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: When in a dream state she is offered a ham sandwich by Nyarlathotep, which she refuses. It Makes Sense in Context.
  • Dual Wielding: In the past she's used two machete jawbone weapons at once.
  • Genki Girl: For someone who hardly sleeps she sure has a surprising amount of energy.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: One of her likely fates, had she not joined the session.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Not that there's much to look at.
  • The Insomniac: For a while, before she found it was actually safe to fall asleep while in the game.
  • Shout-Out: At one point she insists "nobody ever died from insomnia."
  • Sleep Cute: She's done this with Sototh and other team members. Her sleep schedule is so inconsistent she's prone to nodding off at odd hours and prefers to be near somebody when she does so.
  • Ugly Cute: She's got sunken eyes, lank hair and creepy fused-together fingers but she's just so itty bitty!

Gallia Wuquus

Your name is Gallia Wuquus, and you live to serve... you are, after all, a maid.

equineReaction was the servant of a powerful woman before she entered the game, and she remained servile well into its development. When not hamstringed by that mindset, she reveals herself to be strict and mean — with a slight hidden nice side.


Jezron Irixite

Your name is Jezron Irixite, and you work for a living, just like everyone should. Those mines aren't going to excavate themselves.

undergroundScythe spent most of his time in the mines underneath Alternia, extracting ores with his trusty pickaxes. He was hounded by various game constructs when he finally entered, and he decided to strike out on his own to fix everything. This loner's attitude made things difficult for him when he formed a relationship with Pallida, creating various problems. He later snapped when Gallia broke Pallida's jaw, attacking Gallia with his server powers. When the teams were formed, he went with Juniprei, forming a red relationship with her. He was later poisoned, dying alone and unrevived.


Juniprei Unimaro

Your name is Juniprei Unimaro, and you're going to steal the spotlight! You deserve to be the star... right?

sapphireNativity is a bipolar young lady with a bad combination: a distinctive love for film and a sense of self-esteem which is hanging out with the dirt and bugs. She covers up her feelings with her acting skill, switching between emotions based on her whims.


  • Break the Cutie: Jezron's death left her hurting.
  • Stepford Smiler: She has feelings, but she'll often act as if she's perfectly happy when she isn't at all.
  • Killer Yoyo
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: She doesn't swear often, but when she does, it's serious. Or she's pretending to be really pissed. But generally the former.

Malhaut Obliquus

Your name is Malhaut Obliquus, and you'd rather not disclose any more than that. A spy can never be too careful...

nefariousNautilus was a young agent of the Alternian military. He stepped up to lead the trolls of the hacked session, despite his dark blood and anemia.


  • My Greatest Second Chance: Although it's not consciously done, by leading the trolls he's making up for his former crew's demise.
  • Team Dad: Leave one of his crew in the dust and abandon them? God, of course not. Well, not including Jezron to some extent due to past incidents.
  • Tranquil Fury: Most of the time, true boiling anger only comes out like this for him.

Megdul Impulenin

Your name is Megdul Impulenin, and you would have stood a good chance of competing for the Empress's position if not for your defect. Despite being a seadweller... you were born without gills.

lightningAuthoritarian has a cool, unruffled air about him, unfazed by all but the harshest surprises. He's also the fastest character by far — he might not beat a speeding bullet, but he'll beat anyone in a sprint.


Nibzan Somrar

Your name is Nibzan Somrar, and you don't give a single fuck. You don't think it's asking too much to expect trolls to act like trolls.

ironicMainstream is perhaps the most hateful of the trolls. He rarely has anything nice to say about anyone — but he'll gladly espouse everyone's flaws. His insults are perhaps only surpassed by his art, because he's really a very good painter.


Pallida Sanguine

Your name is Pallida Sanguine, and you don't care what everyone else says about being 'proper'. You'll give up everything for your experiments - even your reputation.

bucketJockey was an outlaw scientist on Alternia, caught by Malhaut's team just before the game began. She and her genetic experiments were both viewed as criminally indecent — a reputation she may have earned after entering the game. Flirtatious and blunt, she escapes lethal situations through application of her charismatic charm. Her luck ran out when Valert injected ink into her bloodstream, and she died.


Signa Veritan

Your name is Signa Veritan, and you know the way back home. You know the way everywhere else, too.

crimsonCartographer was all alone in the Alternian wilderness, and that suited her just fine. When she entered the game, she had to learn all about how trolls relate to other trolls.


Sototh Alazif

Your name is Sototh Alazif and you are kind of weird. You guess that's just what happens when horrific beings from beyond the deep speak to you every sleeping moment.

benthicDreamer has a problem: he's a tool of the horrorterrors. He does his best to deal with this the best way he knows how — judicious application of his shotgun. In the end, he can't fight their influence... and in the end, he doesn't want to.


Swinde Truffa

Your name is Swinde Truffa, and you can spot a mark from a mile off. Everyone's a sucker for something...

absoluteTruth is a con artist with a secret passion for raising FLARP grubs. Cool and aloof, she gets the job done through lies and manipulation.


  • Blatant Lies: Her trolltag. It's absoluteTruth and she's a con artist
  • Con Man: Though not by choice.
  • Emotionless Girl: She needs to be, to successfully hide it when a scam goes awry.
  • Glove Slap: Her preferred mode of attack. Fits in with her suit.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: She always uses large words. Instead of "help" it's "assist." In her angrier moments she uses smaller and more common words, though.
  • Thirsty Desert: Her world. The only clean water is fast being polluted, and the only majorly habitable area had major problems.

Valert Pengler

Your name is Valert Pengler, and you think that everything can be unique. Creativity isn't dead on Alternia, and you'll prove it!

wayvardArter is the other artist of the hacked session — but unlike Nibzan, Valert is a horrible troll. He strives to be nice, and he tries to make everything artistic and unique, because he can't stand the bland conformity of Alternia. He experienced a momentary snap, and killed Pallida.



Sandro Somrar

Your name is Sandro Somrar and you're fairly convinced your life sucks. You may be right.

portraitistSandro is the ancestor of Nibzan and if he'd known how privileged his descendent was going to be he'd probably have killed himself out of spite. He lived a fairly hard life even by Alternian standards and died alone and unknown in his studio aged 17 sweeps.


Dianth Syndactyl

As an advisor to the Empress herself, Dianth's job is very stressful, and not at all helped by the horrible nightmares he's had since he began living and working there. He's had enough and is willing to do anything to make them stop. He is Aragua's ancestor and differs from her in almost every single way, including gender.


  • Evil Chancellor: A rare example where his ill will is not directed toward the one he advises.
  • Jerkass Woobie: He's just a coward with too much power, and who is terrified beyond his wits without being able to do anything about it. He just wants to sleep peacefully for once.


Joe Thomas

Your name is Joe Thomas. You're not a hacker, you're a MODDER. You really wish people would get that..

rotatingMaraschino is the newest addition to the hackers. He's pretty dim, and he has yet to realize that he's not in a standard video game. Only time will tell what comes of this.


Helen "Lizarré" Kueper

Your name is... well you've never told anyone, and prefer people call you Lizzaré and nothing else. No Liz, no nothing. No matter what, you're just simply one of the worst coders ever in existence ever.

egotisticalFrustration is the quite sarcastic and lazy hacker of this session. Honestly, she has a few anger issues as well.


Ataxia Cardis

> Be the robot bitch.Your name is ATAXIA CARDIS, but you're actually UNSURE.



Yes, that Nyarlathotep. An enigmatic Horrorterror in the shape of a troll, who is observing and manipulating the trolls' session for a variety of mostly-unknown reasons.



How well does it match the trope?
