Argent Starr


Aliases: Argent Sevenson, A+
Origins: Earth
Species: Kohntrarian/Human

Secret guardian of Earth, super-scientist, genius inventor, explorer, amateur magician, true of heart, analytical, adventurous, fastidious, sardonic. Known off-world as a Teklok, a technological sorcerer.

Father: BoB:7, a rogue alien warrior-scientist, agent of The Code. Mother: Earth-born Dr. Celia Starr, herself a descendant of healers, psychics and witches.

He inherited his massive intellect and scientific curiosity from his father who augmented him from birth with nanites to strengthen his cross-species nervous and immune systems. As an unintended result he gained the technopathic ability to subvert electronic systems, control nearby machines and computers remotely with little more than a thought.

specter_mugshot_03Specter


Aliases: X679, "The Cat", Gata Loca
Origins: Earth
Species: Feline, Domestic shorthair

Argent’s cat and familiar, both companion and scientific experiment.

Fierce, adventurous, curious, loyal, intuitive, impulsive, silly.

A nearly dead stray found by Mrs. Thorne, who implored Argent to save her. He implanted the not quite brain-dead animal with a chip that not only saved her, but increased her mental abilities to that of a six-year-old human, and then wirelessly linked her to his brain to monitor the results.

Speaks a bit of rough Spanish, and is given to coarse language under stress since her vocabulary words mostly come from Mrs. Thorne and Mexican wrestling TV shows.

Affectionate, but devoted only to ‘Señorrr’ Argent and ‘Señorrra’ Thorne. Like most six-year-olds, she has no “filter”, and will blast out a string of foul curses in Spanish at anyone she’s got a beef with.

BoB:62


Aliases: Sixtwo, Dr. Sextoo, Bumpy

An alien with a life-span of well over 250 Earth years, trained from birth to become a high officer serving The Code. Raised and educated at a Code Sanctuary, indoctrinated in it’s ways and beliefs, upon graduation granted the title of ‘BoB’ and given a number based on his rank within his assignment sector.

Due to irregularities during his previous two assignments his rank was lowered and he was placed on probation. In 2037 (TD) he was sent to Earth to report activities or violations of The Code quarantine, to accumulate planetary wealth and influence and manage the long-term planetary pacification program.

He often wears a long spinach-green dreadlock wig to cushion his ‘lootahs’ (skull nodes). He requires a gelatin-based conductor applied to these skull nodes in order to get the most out of the many earthgirls he hires for sex, so he keeps a whole rainbow of Jell-O dessert cups on hand.
