Walter "Wally" Ramsey

Wally's Cameo

Like many people, Wally works a job he must, for people who who could care less, and for far less than he thinks he's worth.

He works alongside his friend Basil in the IT industry. He lives with both Basil and Duncan in true bachelor fashion. He expects to remain a bachelor for some time as most of his romantic attachments end in ruin -- for reasons he can't always understand.

Basil D. Fledermaus

Basil's Cameo

Basil has been Wally's closest friend since they were both in nursery school. They have many common interests but choose to enjoy those things in different ways. Basil is grounded more in the realm of intellect than of imagination and cannot always understand his friend's whimsical behaviour.

After spending many years in school, Basil is now employed as a software developer -- a position he attacks with enthusiasm because having a purpose in life is the most important thing to him.

Marsha Van Mees

Marsha's cameo

Marsha Van Mees became acquainted with Wally, Basil, Duncan and Sheila soon after she took up residence as Sheila's roommate. Although she has little in common with Sheila and often disagrees with her point of view, Marsha and Sheila remain friends and can be seen together frequently.

Marsha has expressed a romantic interest in Wally but so far has been frustrated in her attempts to be noticed by him. The two have formed a very chummy relationship and Marsha fears that either Wally can only ever see her as a friend, platonically as it were, or worse, that he simply isn't interested in her that way.

Marsha is employed as a graphic designer for the public access television station that both Sheila and Duncan work for: Channel 13.

Sheila St. Pierre

Sheila's cameo

Sheila is a very particular woman. She is at once very beautiful and very intelligent but, tragically, surrounded by idiots and boors. Sheila rarely refrains from speaking her mind and always, always, shoots from the hip. Some find her manner abrupt, even rude, but those people are not worth talking about, Sheila believes.

Sheila and Wally were highschool sweethearts for several years until she realised that Wally's vision of the future was not one that she could stomach. Her termination of their engagement served to create a significant rift between her and Wally, as one might expect, nonetheless the two have friends in common and all too often circle one another in an adversarial manner.

Sheila has found a certain kinship with Basil in that he is the one person with whom she can converse on an even level. The two are often together discussing politics, religion, and everything else that comes to mind.

Duncan Hendly

Duncan's cameo

Duncan came into the lives of Wally and Basil while they were looking for a third person to room with in their University days. Before that, he was known to them but it was during their communal "life of the college guy" that their friendship was galvanized. Duncan works for the local TV station (Channel 13 Action News!) as a cameraman and broadcast technician. Career-wise, he's everywhere he wants to be.

Duncan has a talent for saying exactly the right thing to cause exactly the most negative reaction in most people. He has his own point of view and a distinct way of doing things. He may be rough around the edges but Duncan is an honest and loyal friend to Basil and Wally.
