Height: 7 cm
GothBoy is all that is left of the the boy Mo, the living incarnation of MO. GothBoy has lost all his powers and his name when his human soul was rescued by his friend Ivy. Now he has to get by in a big, cold world.
Ivy befriended GothBoy when GothBoy was still Mo, and they were both in university. He fell in love, but chose not to let Mo know, in case it would ruin their friendship. His love for Mo allowed him to save him, or at least to drag that part of Mo that was human into the real world. Whether this was such a good idea remains unsure.
Hobbies: the Occult, Demonology
Favourite Dish: Mosquito
Ricci was one of Mo's friends, and helped him escape from hell's broomcloset. Now he is stuck at matchbox-size like his two friends. Although Ricci is a slightly dodgy character -- he has some distinctly vampiric traits and is a member of the secret 'Eggs of Satan' society -- he has shown that his heart is in the right place.
BRANDONAge: 1.6 years
Pets: Ivy, GothBoy, Ricci
Brandon (named after another famous crow) was trained by Ivy as a pet. He never considered himself a pet though, and now that he is considerably larger than Ivy, the roles are reversed. Brandon takes care of the gloomy trio and takes them out when they want to leave the garden.
JESSAge: between 6 and 18
Favourite colour: Purple
Favourite kitten: the one with the speck on his nose
Jess is just the right mixture of annoying and uplifting. She shields herself from the darkness of the world with a bright smile and an aura of perk. Either that, or she's a complete airhead. We're not sure which.
Likes: Playing on Mo's Playstation
Dislikes: most other activities
Jim was Mo's best friend, and had been for a long time. He's a typical slacker, likes to get by doing as little as possible. Has a litter of kittens and all the Buffy videos you could ever want.
Origin: the Space between the Stars
Long term Goal: World Domination
The monster under Mo's bed. How it got there, what it wants, whether it likes watching TV, we don't know. Perhaps one day, we will find out. And then it may be too late.
MO is the demon who has plagued our little hero since he was little (though not as little as he is at the moment). MO created a human version of himself to a purpose currently unknown. As human Mo grew up he began to understand what he was, but has been in denial for a long time. MO decided it was time he learned the hard way, and began to instruct Mo in the art of being god.
Gripe: Killed herself for MO
Jenny is the ghost haunting Mo's university room. What exactly happened to her she will not explain, only 'show' in a strange, muddled up flashback reality. What it comes down to is that she killed herself because she thought she could be with MO in the next life. She haunted Mo because he is MO.
GODDESS JENNYAge: Irrelevent
Sphere: Nature and All That
Loves: the god MO
OK, this is where it gets even more complicated. The ghost Jenny and the new Jenny are both manifestations of the goddess Jenny, who probably isn't called Jenny. Anyway, she's in some kind of excruciating unrequited love situation with MO, and talked him into sending an avatar into the world. She considers the experiment failed, and feels kinda sorry for what remains of the avatar.
MOLOCHAge: Dawn of Time
Alignment: Chaotic Evil
Made famous by: Milton's Paradise Lost
Milton introduced him far better than I could, so I'll just quote:
First Moloch, horrid King besmear'd with blood
Of human sacrifice, and parents' tears,
Though for the noise of Drums and Timbrels loud
Their children's cries unheard, that past through fire
To his grim Idol. Him the Ammonite
Worshipt in Rabba and her wat'ry Plain,
In Argob and in Basan, to the stream
Of utmost Arnon. Nor content with such
Audacious neighbourhood, the wisest heart
Of Solomon he led by fraud to build
His Temple right against the Temple of God
and made his Grove the Type of Hell.
Paradise Lost, Book I, ll. 392-405
