It ran from 2004 to 2008. The author is currently working on a second webcomic called Cerintha.
This series provides examples of:
- Awesome Mc Coolname: Vagrant Grey.
- Badass Boast: I. Am. FUCKING INVINCIBLE!
- Bishōnen: Leander.
- Boisterous Bruiser: Vagrant Grey
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Vagrant Grey, again. She actually weaponizes it, using a recording of her jabbering to draw her target out into the open.
- Fragile Speedster: Vagrant Grey would probably be immobilized by one hit from Severi, if he could only hit her.
- Mighty Glacier: Despite hit incredible strength, Severi doesn't move that fast compared to more or less anyone he fights.
- No-One Could Have Survived That: Vagrant grey deliberately invokes this, commenting that her attack was unsurvivable and then being surprised when Severi doesn't appear
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: a few people have tried this on Grey. It doesn't end well for any of them.
- Straight Gay: Leander. At least, in the way that his sexuality is rarely mentioned and it's not really a big deal to the other characters.
- Super Soldier: Severi/Sigma.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: some people are exited about the possibility of immortality. Others are horrified.
