Heather Lockhart

Heather is the sultry and electrifying bandleader of Mercy's Fist. She's rude, crude and doesn't pay mind to any sort of consequence due to her actions. Unlike her band mates, her personality doesn't differ much off or on the stage. She's been known to do and say rather outlandish things. Like proclaiming her distaste of pro-environment groups to making out with fans onstage. She does what she wants and gets what she wants. If her morality were a compass, the needle would have fallen out ages ago.

Irene Oda Brown

In her youth, Irene used to be a singer back in her home country. Along with her brothers, she would travel to various taverns, restaurants and special events. She eventually met a suave and handsome singer who completely swept her off her feet and took her overseas to start a new life.

Unfortunately that new life apparently consisted of running off to perform while leaving her to take care of their newly born child. At first Irene wanted to give her husband a chance to get it out of his system. To let him perform for a while before deciding to settle down with her. Alas, settling down never came as even a consideration for the man. Irene refused to raise her child in such unstable, constantly moving conditions so she ultimately decided part ways with her husband and settle down in a single place.

Since then, she used her entire savings and the occasional financial assistance from her now ex-husband to build a humble flower shop and to raise her boy properly with kindness, understanding and above all, stability.

Iris Davenport

Iris comes from a long line of athletes, body builders and gym rats. However her life's desires began to conflict with those of her parents and so they quickly drifted apart. Iris always had a tough time coping with her sheer size and demeanor. When people look at her, they tend to raise an eyebrow or feel intimidated.

Due to this typical reaction from people, Iris had quickly become cold, distant and disconnected in order to protect herself from getting hurt. That is, until she met a moonlighting wrestling referee named John who helped her realize there was still good people out there.

Jo Calderón

Professional lawyer by day, womanizer and Dungeon Master at night, Jo is a man of many skills. He tends to be the practical decision maker and the voice of reason in the group. When not putting out fires or dealing with the justice system, he spends his time free time painting, playing D&D and occasionally chasing after women.

Although it seems that his group of friends frustrate and baffle him at times, he actually finds them endearing. He also considers them to be a tether to a normal social life since without them, he knows he can easily drown himself in nothing but work.

John Brown

If there was a human embodiment of positivity, naivety and goofball-ness, it would be John. This attitude served him well for a while since most of his childhood was spent traveling from city to city, never really settling down for too long.

He was solely raised by his mother who ended up deciding to finally settle down and leave her non-present husband. John typically means well but more often than not, finds himself biting off more than he can chew in life.

Lance Walker

Lance’s life has been filled with lots of twists and turns. Being an adolescent during the golden age of arcade games, he was fully enthralled by these new technological feats in entertainment. After all, it seemed like they were taking over the world. So much so that he was able to make a bit of a career out of it. Coaching people on how to play various games, playing tournaments and making the occasional ‘local celebrity’ spokesperson appearance. Of course when the inevitable video game crash of 1983

Luis Velasquez

Professional musician, songwriter and producer, Luis is a man of many talents. He spent all of his adult life trying to make it big in the music industry.

Marita Oda

Marita is one of many siblings in the Oda family. However, unlike the others, she was more interested in the medical field as opposed to being an entertainer. She was very successful, working out of various hospitals and private practices. She continued with her career for many, many years until her relationship with her mother eventually exploded with the two arguing and fighting until Marita self-exiled herself out of the country. She ended up creating her own practice nearby one of the only other family members she still trusted.

When it comes down to it, Marita is a very carefree individual. She enjoys letting her hair down and having a good time, something her family would often frown upon. She's essentially single and ready to mingle with no plans on settling down with a single person. Her demeanor changes drastically when she's working her job though. One would hazard a guess that the reason she's so wild and free off duty is because she acts so polite and professional during her job.

Max Hellenberger

Max is a ball of spunk... which is ironically enough, one of her favorite terms. If Addison was outgoing, Max is that but four times as much. She's very straight to the point and is never shy about much of anything. Also hugging for Max can sometimes involve all limbs. She's originally from Tailsteak's concluded comic Leftover Soup.

Riley Walker

Riley lives and breathes video games. So it was no surprise to his father that very early on, he declared that he would pursue a career in professional gaming. Lance being a supportive father, encouraged his son to follow his dream. His only request was to make sure that he had a plan B. Thankfully for Riley, said plan B wasn’t necessary in the end and he was able to make a modest living doing various events, tournaments, and livestreams.

Roxanne Smith

A regular in the protesting scene, Roxanne is an avid advocate for women's rights, animal rights, the environment and dismantling capitalism. The latter is a constant weight of irony for her since she typically toils in a department store.

She's kind of aloof when it comes to what she wants to do with her life in the long term. She's always been a "Here and now" kind of person. She only just recently began planning for the future after coming to terms with some things in her life. Her goal is to become a scientist like Abby Sciuto from NCIS.

Sebastian Okada

Bartender and flirt extraordinaire. Sebastian has always prided himself in being a people-person, which tends to come in handy behind a bar. Originally Sebastian had intended to become a chemist but his ambitions changed when he went to a bar one day and developed a romantic relationship with the bartender there.

Although the relationship didn't last, his passion for mixing drinks stayed and he decided to switch careers and focus on becoming a fully licensed bartender. He often says there's very little difference between chemistry and mixology.

Shin Jun

Former lead guitarist in the band Mercy's Fist, Shin was an unapologetic, brash sex symbol. Heavily influenced by Heather, he cared very little for the consequences of his actions and was responsible for a lot of broken hearts. After realizing that he didn't like what he had become, he severed ties with the band and moved back into his former home town.

Along with Heather and Zoey, he was best friends with John and they would hang out and jam together all the time. Shin prefers more of a mellow and acoustic sound opposed to his time with Mercy's Fist. He also enjoys sailing and fishing. So much in fact that he actually lives on a yacht with the money he's saved.

Zoey Tucker

When she performed as a bassist for Mercy's Fist, her personality was wild, in-your-face and unapologetic. In reality, Zoey is much more reserved. She enjoys classic rock and would much rather have a quiet evening plucking away at her guitar. She also has a bit of a nerdy side, one she typically indulges in with very close friends.
