Things

They are the heart of the web comic. They make me happy, I hope they make you happy too. I often think of them as a duo and I thought they would prefer it if I kept them together on the cast page. When referred to singly they prefer zir, ze or they.

Bunson Hoppydew

He may well be the best pink bunny ever! BunNSOn Hoppydew is also a beloved roller derby mascot. He is my muse (along with his dad, roller derby referee Mike Hammer).

boot

Of all the characters on the page, boot is my oldest friend. Boot's based on the steel capped boots I bought when I turned 18. I'd always wanted steel capped boots and those boots have never let me down. We walked many miles together, carried a lot of heavy stuff together, have brushed off a lot of mud. Boot might look gruff, and you certainly wouldn't want to mess with boot... but underneath it all, I think that boot might be the most caring of all the characters.

Mayara

Mayara is a Tamarin seed sized Tamarind. She's pretty fabulous. Some day, she will show you the cosmos (it's one of my grand plans, but like a grand plan it's intimidating).

rollerskate

Roller derby has a way of infecting everything. I like roller skates. I think of them as the semi-wild pony. The bucking bronco of the comic.

monorail bunny

Bunson Hoppydew and I got to meet the real Monorail Bunny. He is tiny, cute and a very nice chap. We were very excited, but for some reason he inspired this somewhat creepier version. The Monorail Bunny in this comic is quite disturbing - he's like a creepy lurking wizard with magnets.
