If you wish to learn about the cast, this is the page for you! (Of course, if you’re inclined to take it from the top and start with the first strip, you can do that, too.)
Jenelle Camilla Ives
Brainy pop-culture junkie. Ambiguously responsible for the giant explosion at Micimek University. (It was an accident.) Somewhat distressed at her career’s persistent decay.
Likes: tubas, novelties, giving the ol’ college try
Dislikes: hindsight, surprises, explosions (a kind of surprise)
Roy Michael Sloan
Unpleasant history fanatic. Romanticizes every era except his own. He can’t stand you and your stupid questions, so please don’t bother asking.
Likes: Olympians, democracy, epics, tragedies, hapax legomena
Dislikes: most things (specifically: undergrads, bears)
Milo Nicholas Mamalakis
Literal-minded tinkering weirdo. Somewhat childish. Did you see the awesome thing that he made because hoo boy it sure is neat and hey you aren’t even looking!
Likes: frontiers, mysteries, zapping
Dislikes: hocus pocus, hoodoo voodoo, abra cadabra
Cassandra (of Illium)
Semi-famous mythological figure. Disillusioned with her profession (soothsayer) and thoroughly bewildered regarding the 21st century (and the crazy crap contained therein).
Likes: solitude, sarcasm, Schadenfreude
Dislikes: Apollo, boozy leches, high-fructose corn syrup
Oswald Remington “O. R.” Donly
Professional crankypants and former professor at Micimek University. Stop that, you’re probably doing it wrong and he should have just done it himself in the first place.
Likes: sandwiches, being generally amazing
Dislikes: dicking around
Owner of Mister Skeleton’s Diner. Possibly immortal. Unclear whether or not he is a literal skeleton.
Likes: winter, buddies, jazz standards, Zeppelining
Dislikes: Captain Nemo Toad and his stupid little hat
