Ed

First Appearance: January 12, 1998 (SFU Peak). Reintroduction: March 2, 2008

Born in Marmot Valley, Alberta. Ed had always been a dreamer, an eternal optimist with nothing but the best intentions, despite his insecurity, ineptitude and naïvety. He has kept several small south American countries afloat with his coffee consumption. He almost always wears a red shirt (a subtle nod to the doomed ensign).

Rocco

First Appearance: February 2, 1998 (SFU Peak). Reintroduction: March 3, 2008

Rocco was involved in a rite that would grant him immortality. Unfortunately, something went dreadfully wrong and he was trapped in the body of a plush raccoon. After several failed attempts to take over the world, Rocco ended up as the toy companion to Ed.

Rocco fills the role of father figure to both Ed and Kanna. He recently  financed a rebellion in corrupt Guaranastan, becoming the  leader of Rocconia in the process. His first taste of megalomanical success…

Kanna

First Appearance: September 20, 1999 (SFU Peak). Reintroduction: March 6, 2008

Kanna is the runaway heir to the fairy throne. She is unpredictable and quick to fly into a rage at the slightest provocation. Like most Fey she has no respect for the mortal condition. Unlike her fairy brethren she doesn’t toy with the hearts of men, to the point of reacting with violence to anything even remotely objectifying. Kanna is an accomplished sorceress, but is also very active and prefers a physical solution to a magical one. Kanna dresses “modestly” for a fey.
