Dr. Professor Hoo-Man Root
Sweet friend of every abandoned creature in the cosmos. The Professor’s father (Professor Gondue) and mother were caught up in a transportation accident (gilded era of earths history). Pregnant with the professor at the time, Mrs. Gondue was rescued and healed using tree cells a benevolent alien race had collected on earth. Though her life was saved, she became more plant than human in the process, eventually turning into a tree. Meanwhile, her son gained unusual adaptations in Utero.
Exceptional hearing, as well as a prodigious gift for understanding language, earned The Bat the position of communications officer aboard Dr. Professor Hooman-Root's rescue ship. Like The Professor, the Bat gained specific, strange, and unusual adaptations after being rescued from the homeworld they (and we) share. He enjoys gifts like self-awareness, a heart as big as his ears, and sincere passion for ties and tennis shoes...perhaps a reminder of the world he left behind.
A Nortnän hailing from the polar regions of Belza 147, Furnör is no stranger to ice or magic–the elements which form the symbiotic bond holding his planet together. Furnör spent his youth studying the magic in the brilliantly bright night skies of Nortnän. His hard work and aptitude for understanding the movement and placement of celestial bodies, earned him a position as a navigational officer aboard Dr. Professor Hooman-Root's ship: the Space Nautalis.
Robot Root-Bot is the teenage son of Dr. Prof. Hooman-Root. Teenage for a robot, son in the sense that the Professor constructed him when he himself was only a teenager. Root-Bot is not the bravest entity on the planet, but what he lacks in nerves he more than makes up for in compassion and wonder for the living world around him. In this sense, he's certainly a "chip off the old block." He also resembles The Professor in another secret special way, which you may discover in a chapter or 7.
The vain and tyrannical monarch of Gamma-six-one-twenty. Citizens throughout her capital city of Catmandoo know that what Queen Meowdeema wants, Queen Meowdeema gets! Last known whereabouts: traveling as security officer aboard the H.M.S.Religieuse as a member of Queen Bundalot's rescue crew.
Bzano Bs hail primarily from the Vorgellion canyons of Candella, Queen Bundalot's homeworld. They're faithful, hard working, and quite dangerous if you get on the wrong end of their large and concealed stinger. Amongst Bzano Bs B-Bar is considered a larger than life hero whose valor is known throughout the canyons and catacombs of Candella.
The Larva is a smart, brave “kid” with a lot of attitude who finds herself rolling her eyes a lot as she bails out Macheeb on his adventures. Cheebs go through an egg stage, a larval stage, an adult stage, and possibly an adult evolution stage. Interestingly, Cheebs can choose to remain at any stage for the duration of their lives. The Beezwac Galactic Almanac even cites a planetary elders' guild formed entirely of "adult" cheeb eggs.
As anyone in this quadrant not sleeping under a Geliodian rock spider is undoubtedly aware, Queen Bundalot is one no-nonsense Candy Queen! After Candella fell victim to the ravages of the Chaos Lord, QBL bravely captained the H.M.S.Religieuse on a world to world rescue mission to save the queens of the cosmos. Her last known radio broadcast was within the Beldowon system only 15 beta units away from the planet that Dr. Proffesor Hooman-Root and his crew crash-landed upon.
