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.
Lower Beestapeens are….well, not the most intelligent of insectoids, let’s just say, but are very friendly and approachable creatures. Their small size and wings grant them an ease of movement that is unknown to other non-insectoid flyers. Anger a Lower Beestapeen and you run the risk of getting a fierce stig in the face, so you’d better run. Not that it couldn't catch up.
Annukians are somewhere between mammal and lizzbar. Talk about a combo! While they can somewhat regulate their own body temperature, Annukians can still be calmed by the cold and energized by the heat. That being said... 'talk' with a cold Annukian and 'walk' with a hot one.
A native of Manifold, Speralines are partly in real time space and partly in a higher dimension. Wherever the Speralines get their food from, it sure ain’t physical, as they do not have mouths in realspace. Despite being mouthless, Speralines do have a lot to say compared to other natives of Manifold. However, to actually speak, Speralines will be needing an inter-dimensional translator, thank you very much!
Grepfens are mysterious, even among their own feline kind. They got both the magic and the sprints. Grepfens have been a source of wisdom and insight among the felines. Though their coat of fur is as soft as it is beautiful, Grepfens are more understanding of children approaching them than they are with adults.
Crickles, unlike some of their insectoid brethren, strongly prefer to spend most of their waking time wet, but not submerged in water. Yeah, a little weird. But keeping a Crickle from his normative wetness is asking for a world of trouble and a whole lot of noise!
One of the oddities of the interstellar community, Octorats are more fragile than many of their brethren, but are known to be one of the more intelligent cosmic critters. Finding hidden snacks and treasures on sea and land, Octorats seem to be only able to survive where there is water enough for these discoveries to be found.
Rouconi are not nearly as hot-headed as their appearance might suggest, but they do have a streak of fury nonetheless. While they can always engage in playful banter, they are very easily provoked. But while a quick temper is their second nature, hatred is not.
Froogatians are frog-like and amphibian. They like to be the life of the party among their own kind, but other species tend to find their sociability a tad obnoxious. Interestingly, Froogatians level similar complaints when they aren’t the life of the party, prompting incessant controversy between them and everyone else!
