Background: Amaya was (and still very much is) as average as one could be in a world that televises a war against Improbability itself.

Background: An ancient, if not terribly powerful, quasidemonic entity which, after spending several millenia trapped in a deep-sea trench, was momentarily supercharged and freed by a slow-moving aftershock of the EMP. Upon emerging from the ocean, Azhron managed to enter one of the Network's planes and forcibly possess one of the Island's incoming contestants.

Background: English by the grace of God and a cold night in for his mother and father. Born at some point. There's evidence to suggest this could have been in the 1770s, or perhaps 1909, and maybe, even, the 1970s. He may have been an police officer. Or a train driver. Or perhaps even a fighter pilot. He may even have been a television presenter. Or a food critic. Perhaps even an accountant. That's the point, really. He could have been. Really. His easy charm with a certain demographic saw some TV executives rubbing their hands in glee and he was brought to the Island to help increase market share amongst those ladies who would otherwise be working in charity shops.
Significant plot summary: The Sammich of Dismay, The Puce Tulip & Chauvelin, The Midget General Strike and M*A*S*H 404. To be fair, his normal role in plots is to get in the way, bumble around and generally come out with appalling double entendres much to the dismay of his colleagues.

Background: An Island monster that looked around and saw that attacking contestants was begging to be killed. "Turned" to the side of "Good"12) 13) and now spends his time mucking about in outposts. His failure to "perform normally" has warranted a number of drastic changes to his mindset and body in attempts to bring him "to spec."
Significant plot summary: 13, 8. That plot is at least 800 square feet.
Personality: Generally laid back. Due to his origins, he has natural tendencies to "go after" anyone who would usually be quickly culled in the jungles, though he suppresses these urges. Possibly a bit forgetful and scatterbrained these days, but more seeming like he's distracted by something.
Apparent characteristics: All the notes he has stuffed in his pockets make him seem a bit... eccentric. While he tries to keep his coat clean, he doesn't wash it often enough, leaving dirt marks along the bottom and on the edges of the sleeves. Also, he's a rabbit.
Skills: Bart is spatially minded, and is often a well of information on a variety of topics. A deft hand when it comes to construction, it seems, too.

Apparent characteristics: A round, tiny Asian woman, under five feet tall and cheerfully plump despite the privations of S2. She is always dressed in work clothes that cover every square inch of skin below her jaw.
Skills: A gifted biological engineer, she's dying to make you an improved arm, which coincidentally means excellent surgical and anatomical skill.

Background: Born somewhere in west coast America, in a boring small town to a boring small town life, the perfect combination to make a restless young man stir-crazy. Joined the Air Force the instant they'd let him and hasn't been back since... and it doesn't seem likely he ever will. Seems unusual for someone in the service to be taken to the Island, and he'll complain about it at length to anyone who'll listen.
Significant plot summary: Arrived on the Island and was generally very unhappy about it. Slow to make friends and slower to earn them, he's still doing his best to keep to something resembling practicality.

Skills: Above anything else, he's a fighter. His day isn't complete if he isn't ruining somebody else's. Incongruous to this is a budding hobby as a mechanic and tinkerer.
Background: It's a long story.

Background: Sessine was brought to the Island from a distant post-singularity future. Before coming to the Island he had died eight times, only once of old age. (Mostly he had been assassinated: politics was a dangerous career there, but he kept going back to it.)
Significant plot summary: When Zolotisty lost her hearing to the Wind, Sessine vowed to her that this would not stand. Though no gambler, he kept that vow. The two were married, then divorced. He established the Island's rail system, and tries but utterly fails to conceal his pride in this.
Personality: Mild-mannered, courteous unless severely provoked, a careful planner, an ingenious inventor, a bit of a mystic, Sessine has been quieter of late. He laughs less often than he did, though he still has his quick, engaging grin.
Apparent characteristics: Sessine is lean and wiry, mid-height, usually about thirty-five years old, with curly brown hair and dark blue eyes that occasionally glint a mischievous green.
Skills: Mixes Improbability freely with mechanical skills. When he concentrates, he has the ability to make things that Work Right. He senses shape as the Wind does; his native element is Air. A hand-drummer.

Background: Mechanic and handyman hailing from the streets of Brooklyn (so he claims), Den mostly worked on plumbing, fridges, and television sets post-EMP. A quick hand with electronics and pipes, Den's more of the "put things together and tinker to see how they work" guy rather than the "build things from scratch" guy, although he's learning. Lot of his other background, never wanted to talk about. Specifically never talking about relationships or why he's got a poker face a mile long...

Significant plot summary: Recently discovered that even before his Island life, he was never human, but from a race of highly intelligent Interdimentional beings known as Tarloreans, who were among the first to both discover multiple universes AND be able to travel through them. He was dropped on this Earth as an infant to unknowingly research humans. He looks normal because Tarloreans don't look too different from humans except Tarloreans tend to be taller then average with pale skin and frail-looking bodies

Background: Ebenezer used to work in a boring office doing something with lots of numbers and paper.

That is what he was doing every day before coming to the Island. He also had a cat named Muffin.
Significant plot summary: Ebenezer has a magical foam sword that was given to him by Skidge. He's married to Escemfer, though they still have a love/hate relationship. Zolotisty has promised to teach him to learn how to fall with style. He also spends a lot of time on the FailBoat (not by choice, mind you).
Personality: The word "curmudgeon" sums it up. If he is rude, grouchy, or cranky, it's best not to take it personally; that's how he makes friends. He is rational by nature, which makes him rather frustrated with the Island's Improbable qualities. Ebenezer also has his own moments of dry humour, however.
Apparent characteristics: As a human, Ebenezer had scruffy, light-brown hair, plain blue eyes, and round spectacles. Though his form may change, this is how he feels under it all. He is usually scowling or sneering and tends to adjust his spectacles as a nervous habit.

See Ebenezer's wiki page for more dry information.
Background: Edwina Carol Black is a radical feminist from Syracuse.
Significant plot summary: She has squishy feelings about Mara. She refuses to kill things, so she will never meet Horatio.
Apparent characteristics: 5'5", healthy weight, hirsute, long-haired, not filthy but not well-kept
Skills: resourceful, good cook
Background: Epaphus has nothing in his background. Rumor has it, he did not exist before being dropped onto the Island. Obviously, this is false, because he already idolized the comic stylings of Daffy Duck, and quickly formed Clan QQQ in his honor. He is also rumored to have some sort of moddish powers but prefers to spend his time in the Jungle, loitering about the Moderator's Grotto20), and having drinks on the Failboat.
Significant plot summary: His most important accomplishment has been finding the super-secret entrance to The Watcher's private quarters on the Failboat, where he made off with the contents of her underwear drawer. While Epaphus considers this Clan QQQ's most important panty raid to date, The Watcher continues to be miffed about this, refuses to go out with him21), and charges him double for drinks at the Failboat bar.
Personality: None known. Rumored to be "snarky" (by Zolotisty), but really more "annoying," hence his name. Annoying, though, isn't really a personality. Nope, not at all.
Apparent characteristics: Tall. Pale. Highly intelligent, quick, and cunning. Unpredictably unpredictable. Prone to making decisions that seem to be reckless but invariable turn out to be the right choice.22) Dislikes dogma because he's really more of a cat person. Definitely an acquired taste.23)
Skills: Loves to paint graffiti of Blair Hippos on the buttocks of players trapped in the stocks. Also loves to quote obscure art-pop songs and has developed the habit of pursuing himself across the page with footnotes on the forum.24)
Everything known about this player is nothing but lies and rumor. Slanderous lies and rumor.
Background: It's not certain where she comes from or why her name is Escemfer, but her life before the island probably involves Nebraska, and potentially working at a grocery store.
Significant plot summary: Love/hate relationship with Ebenezer, owns a magical foam sword from Skidge, and is currently involved in the Ex Libris plot.

He was a permanent, if unwelcome, addition to the otherwise unnoticeable contestant and they wouldn't get along.

Significant plot summary: Nothing overly major yet25), the most notable would be being Manimal on the G Team.
Personality: He is a stereotypical Irishman: Very often drunk and with a thick accent, he is bull-headed and stubborn. He loves to mess with people and pick fights, but he is willing to help answer questions or help (usually).26)
Apparent characteristics: He's a floating head. Around 1' tall, he floats generally 5 feet off the ground. He has reddish-brown hair and a scruffy beard from both ears down to and under his chin. His clan badge covers up the hole where his neck would be. Rarely never smells of booze.

Not these half human weirdos.

A Rather Un-Eloquent Wiki.
Background: GeTh came into being twenty-one years ago in Batavia, Illinois under certain
improbable implausible ridiculous circumstances which will probably be forgotten about and quietly retconned while no one is looking.
SignificantInsignificant plot summary: The closest thing GeTh has to any actual significance is the ongoing construction of the Reflectionary, which will probably be used by someone for something marginally useful at some time in the future. Out of at least ten planned rooms, four are currently complete and none are currently important.
Personality: GeTh had a powerful tendency toward angst in his first six drive kills or so. Fortunately for us all, he got better and is now generally an easy-going person. He often claims to be human even when this is obviously a lie. He explains this by saying "Human is a state if mind."
Apparent characteristics: These change depending on his current species33)34). However, his body always features some sort of visible metallic component.
Skills: GeTh has a minute degree of control over electrical flow through his metallic parts. He is currently trying to develop this skill further.

Got kicked out of home and subsequently spent a while living on the streets, stealing things and generally hanging out with The Wrong People (though that depends, of course, on your perspective).

Significant plot summary: No major plot points thus far. Amongst other things, has been seen rapidly leaving the scene of a gas explosion, singing the odd carol and losing a fight with a small house in AceHigh.

His mind usually was very far from his "friends" minds, so he got used to being alone and thinking.

Background: Seemingly the only person certain of Joey's background is Joey himself, and he doesn't seem that sure himself. He's told several different tales of his life Pre-Island, and made plenty of references and allusions which, when added together don't quite match up, almost as if he's not got just one set of memories, but many.
Significant plot summary: Joey's been involved in several plots - most focusing on his own love life, but he dabbled in the Ex Libris venture and now that he has sorted out his romance problems by settling down with Shi he has taken on a new venture - The Knight's of the Decagonal Table.
Personality: Once a relatively loose person, Joey drank and flirted shamelessly, and yet tried always to help - a classic Rookie. He's been through a great deal since then, and certainly had bad spots, but he's now essentially the same person he was with less of the flirting and drinking. To summarize; foolish and kind.
Apparent characteristics: He's a kittymorph, chocolatey fur. He wears a tuxedo-esque suit, with white gloves - quite dressy for most kittys. It's topped by a black bowler with a feather in it visually like motor oil - black, but flashes with colours in the light. Perched on the hat also is a small twine crown, denoting his status rather metaphorically.
Skills: Can create cocoa related things due to an Improbability build up not doing anything generally. Crickling (changing dramatically ) is also from the build up.
See Joey's wiki page for more information.

Honest and blunt and thoroughly amiable, except when she's not. Don't talk to Johnson when she's not. She hates drama. Likes flirting, when she's got someone to flirt with. Likes to win at arguments, particularly arguments with boys. Likes people. Always likes people. That doesn't change, even if everything else does.
Apparent characteristics: Looks like a boy. Short, skinny, freckled. Flat-chested. Grey eyes, face like an inquisitive triangle. All elbows and knees like a baby giraffe. The only thing feminine about her is her arse-length black hair which she keeps meticulously clean, braided and coiled under her cap. Oh, she has a cap. And a coat. It's made of green suede. Both may or may not have been stolen off a Joker, who may or may not have been dead. He may or may not have been called Green.
Skills: Honesty. A sharp tongue. A sympathetic ear. The ability to sew. The ability to kick you in the kneecaps. A hat that holds improbable amounts of things (mostly cake and hot chocolate). A bottomless stomach and the fastest metabolism in the world.

Skills: Quite a mechanic and builder, he is also quite talented in making small things like intricate jewelry.
Background: Kali has undoubtedly had many fascinating and exciting adventures. More importantly, however, he has had a very nasty crack on the head during his dropoff onto the Island, and thus cannot remember a thing from before he arrived. Presumably, sooner or later he'll figure out that amnesia doesn't actually work that way.
Significant plot summary: One of those people you often find doing very silly things in the background of other people's pictures. This natural inclination has broadened its horizons as necessary.
At some point, he had a profound disagreement with a very large amount of high explosives. Aside from a little bit of dead, this has not inconvenienced him overmuch.
Personality: Profoundly enthusiastic about most everything. Usually cheerful, occasionally manic, prone to bouts of sullenness and mordancy from which he is easily distracted. Given to cringing. Possibly an excellent conversationalist, but since most of the time no one can tell what he's saying it's sort of a moot point.
Apparent characteristics: Features could be described as "sculpted", in that they look as if they were made by someone with a great deal of artistic vision but no talent to speak of. Skull features prominent metal plating. Magnificently disheveled at all times, carries a bag bulging with assorted scrap.
Skills: Kali is an astonishingly quick learner with a fondness for experimentation and building out of whatever he can get his hands on. This does not stop him from being one of the most singularly incompetent people on the island.

Background: She lived a terribly dull life before coming to the island, and doesn't like to talk about it much. Since arriving, she has found both love and friendship, and is generally content.

Apparent characteristics: Always multicolored in some way. Clothes, fur, even as a robot she's made of crystal.
Skills: Getting along with people. Can do various things with her set of tarot cards when in joker form, otherwise not very good at anything.
Background: Was born a human, but he was very lithe and agile all his life. At a young age, his parents died in an accident, which left him moving between foster homes until he ran away at 16. Ever since then he has lived a wandering life making ends meet as a handyman, until he was abducted and brought to the Island.
Personality: Carefree and fun, he lives in the moment because that's all he has. With such a transient past, the DK mind wipes don't noticeably bother him. Very affectionate in part as a result of his kittymorph form. He's unskilled at making friends because he has difficulty being serious, but he is loyal and would defend those he loves to the death.
Apparent characteristics: Tabby Kittymorph. Brown with three black stripes along the top of his head and down the length of his body. Also 3 black stripes on each cheek starting at his eyes and going diagonally down his cheeks. He used to have a robotic arm and tail.

Skills: Due to his trade as a handyman, he has exceptional skill fixing most basic things and can learn to fix complex things if given time and practice. Very observant and learns by watching.Also, due to his time as a robot, he is pretty good at fixing machinery that involves gears and is always looking for more parts and scrap to work on. His favorite hobby is carving. He almost always has a piece of wood half-carved and takes requests if you ask nicely. As a joker, his skill with carving has translated into an ability to shape basic materials with his hands, like a sculptor would with clay.

Significant plot summary: Plays small roles in big things, taking part readily in other people's chaos. As a novice Joker she folded a paper dragon and brought it to life, naming the creature Kagero; he gained independence and lost his wings when she briefly became human. For a while she toyed with the name Staniel and found herself crowbarred into a fledgling clan, only to be recognised by people who knew her before. She's slowly starting to figure out what, as a Joker, she can actually do.
Personality: Warm-hearted and typically friendly. An old wariness around people leads her to quietness and months spent avoiding company; time spent around certain bad influences has taught her lightheartedness and bad flirting, but they're slower to surface than before. Despite her time here she's still fascinated by Improbability, still quick to trust those who spare time for her.
Apparent characteristics: Taller than short, spare build, fair skin marked with scars and tattoos. Her hair is brown and always long enough to tie back; her eyes are overcast grey-blue, with a very rare flicker of green. Favours practical clothing, usually dressed-down Joker's finery.

He is married to a Joker named Lelila, who was the primary impetus for the assault on the Victorian Compound. There has also been an incident regarding his mental stability in the last season.
Personality: Kai is violent by both nature and preference. It isn't only that he was raised to fight, but he was born to do it. He doesn't take threats very well, even if they aren't sincere or backed up with reason, and has been known to act harshly on them, no matter what the degree. Outside of a violent stage, Kai is almost approachable. He's sometimes seen as even being childish to some degree, and enjoying in playing games and eating candy.

Avoid, if violence makes you cringe.
Background: He is a Narrator, a storyteller whose tales have shaped worlds and influenced fate itself. None of that matters now, since the Improbability infusing the Island has made him unable to access those powers, an issue he has been attempting to resolve by becoming more Improbable. Odd as the logic behind that may be, it seems to be working.
Significant plot summary: He played a minor part in Consequences, The 'COME AS YOU AREN'T' Party and subsequent auction. He has helped the growth of furbles as a species and helped to create the Memorial in the Common Grounds. He was also a part of the battle to keep Gorbert from falling to Chaos, and played a minor part in his revival. In this season, he sparred against a literary figure and helped to free a contestant's mind from an invading Cryptic Questions Joker. Recently, he accidentally Manifested a soul-devouring demon and with some help was able to drive it off. In the process, he revealed the form he's been working towards all this time. Currently maintaining a presence in NewHome as part of the welcome wagon.
Personality: Quiet and polite, at least until he gets to know you. Then he's quite vocal (and still polite), which allows you to experience his archaic mode of speech. Likes to help "tell others' stories". Enjoys philosophical debate, random acts of altruism, and root beer.
Apparent characteristics: A Joker again, and with this comes his usual silver top-hat (with a maroon hat-band), dark brown suit, maroon vest, white shirt, neon-green cravat, sensible black shoes, and metal left forearm, the result of some engineering by Rosin and a polite request to Horatio. He carries his cane under one arm and his deck in his jacket pocket.

Background: 41) When asked if he had a past, he simply replied, "It's none of your business." Which could imply he's been into some seedy business.
Significant plot summary: If you do enough digging into his records, you would discover that he's been a sort of renegade cop. His judgement is quite "Final", as in, all of the criminals he busted were extreme cases and were authorized to be killed by death of crime.

It played a bit of a trick on her, as now she's possibly one of the most weird varieties of vampire out there, if you can even count this one. Fortunately for her morals, she doesn't suck blood, but instead has a growing appetite for fruit. See, she's not like most vampires, who can turn into blood-sucking vampire bats. When touched by sunlight, she instead turns into Pteropus Vampyrus, otherwise known as the Large Fruit Bat. But other than that she's mostly normal.

His team brought back the tele's, and not soon after, he awoke here on the Island to the madness that Dr.Joseph Hawton created.
Significant plot summarization: He scours the Island for pre-war tech in his attempt to build a weapon that is strong enough to rid the world of Horatio, when his clan duties let him.

It's me are a person! NO CAPS PLEASE!!!
Background: The child of two immigrant Irish hippies, Maybe was born near Seattle. A vegetarian pencil-pushing office drone, the Island is the best and worst thing to ever happen to him.
Significant plot summary: Fun fact about Maybe- he's nuts. See, Maybe never hurt anyone back home, always held in his anger. Big mistake. Maybe, as it turns out, is a deeply repressed psychopath. He developed a false personality to deal with his anger, and when the Drive turned him into a very weak Joker, it only got worse.
Personality: Maybe is usually a gentle, sweet, staggeringly awkward fellow, a product of his upbringing. But sometimes, his psychotic nature shows itself, and he becomes a mocking, menacing madman.
Apparent characteristics: Rather short (5'4"), but very fit. Hides his short, messy black hair under a flat cap. Green scars run across his torso and neck, ending on his face. Once had blue eyes, but they now glow green. Sometimes stutters, legacy of a lifelong speech impediment. Light Irish accent that thickens when he's mad.

Significant plot summary: Nothing of real significance accomplished. Has been involved in many, many smaller, less consequential storylines, however.

Apparent characteristics: Her skin tone is a natural dark tan, her hair is black and her one good eye brown. Yes, one good eye.

Skills: She's become a decent marksmen throughout her three years on the Island, but aside from that, any notable skills have been kept under wraps.
Background: Merlanai cannot remember her life before the island, or if she even had one. Being the only Mystic on the island, she is kin to the Joker (which is evident in her elegant frame, glowing eyes, and improbable powers). She differs from the Jokers, however, in that she bends the improbability that she wields for the forces of good. That being said, her relationship with the Drive is still complex as it is the source of her power.
Significant plot summary: None yet.
Personality: Usually reserved and somewhat shy around a group she does not know, but will open up with time. A leader during crisis. Passionate and stubborn.

Background: Once upon a time, Micha was a burnt-out, drugged-out chef for a historical re-enactment tavern in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. Crying children and irritated parents trying to instill a sense of Respect for History in their mewling offspring. The historical re-eneactors getting high in the kitchen walk-in just to deal with it all. Micha herself pretty far gone, running from her dealers, burning the biscuits. She still struggles with an addictive personality.
Significant plot summary: Micha's still here. Somehow.
Personality: Gregarious, with an easy approachability that serves her well. A well-developed sense of schadenfreude, though she tries not to be rude about it. She loves to drink and get rowdy, and is fond of off-colour jokes and terrible puns. Unfortunately prone to mothering other contestants.

Wiki Page is Forthcoming
Background: Before the island, Cozen Hellebore was a docent at Madame Tilliwig's Museum of Oddities, Flim Flam, Really Interesting Things and Generally What Have You. She had no family, no real friends, and no common sense to speak of. The only talent she ever had was leading tourists through the museum and speaking bald lies about the attraction within.
For no readily apparent reason, on an otherwise entirely normal day, Miss Hellebore found herself here and has since gone out of her way to pretend that there's absolutely nothing strange about that.
Significant plot summary: Cozen doesn't really enjoy being a contestant. Fighting monsters, seeking out Horatio, it is all too brutal. Too unpleasant. She really wants to go back to her previous profession as a docent. But Mr Stern won't hire her, so she's taken it upon herself to build Improbable Island's first oddities museum out of an old, abandoned house.
Personality: Proper, ridiculous, and prone to needless adjectival descriptions, Cozen Hellebore is ultimately only one very silly woman. Surely nothing important, dangerous, or interesting can come out of the truly silly.
Apparent characteristics: Cozen isn't very remarkable. Her hair is an unruly mess, topped by a small and ugly top hat. Glasses perch at the end of her long nose. She carries a parasol and strides about purposefully.
Skills: Punctuality and a particularly rude wicker picnic basket.
Background: She used to be a pilot, or so she says. Maybe she even flew the plane that dumped your nude self onto this island in the first place. Or maybe she simply likes to add some story to the pilot's goggles that constantly sit on her forehead. No one really knows as she outright refuses to talk about herself. Though, the Jungle welcomes her like an old friend and she's often seen in the background, hidden in camouflage, watching silently while cradling a bag of mementos from her past; a feather, two marbles, and a silver locket with names engraved inside.
Significant plot summary: That girl. She's always deliriously searching, so much that her fingertips stain black. She wanders here from there, looking everywhere from the cracks in the walls to the oceanside for...something. If you dare to ask why, and she chooses to answer you, she whispers "Zenith" before she moves on.
Personality: Miss Oddity is named so for a reason; the most prominent angle of her personality is her lack of consistent personality. Aggravated by some and mollified by others, she can turn from a leaderless rogue to a quiet, shy thing in an instant. About as stable as the Island weather.
Apparent characteristics: Dark hair that reaches to her waist, ramrod straight and often lifted by the wind. 5'3. Eyes of indescribable color, and a small yet angular face. Changes her outfit every other day; evidently wearing whatever she has found laying around. Cleans and touches her pilot's goggles obsessively
Skills: Skills redacted. Unknown, and never observed openly. Although, she does seem to disappear and reappear at times, though that may only be her quiet nature.
Background: Like nearly everyone else, he just showed up one day without any warning. Since then he has spent almost all his time watching everyone else go about their business. Or that's how it seems to everyone, since he's so average-looking and forgettable that you have to keep him within your field of vision in order to remember anything about him. While this strange phenomenon seems like it could come in handy in numerous ways, the island has yet to fall prey to anything more serious than eavesdropping, horribly bad puns, and long-winded tall tales. Well, for now at least.
Significant plot summary: While he has yet to initate anything of importance, he's an avid voyeur who spends most of his time eavesdropping on others. Sometimes he'll choose to actually get involved in somebody else's business whether he's wanted or not, but only if he feels that he could somehow benefit from such an activity and its outcomes.
Personality: A perpetual voyeur who's constantly eavesdroppping, he has minimal respect for privacy or personal boundaries. Tending to come off as very nonchalant and enigmatic, he uses his near-nonentity status to his advantage and tends to be somewhat surprised when others speak directly to him. He's fascinated by the island's Jokers.
Apparent characteristics: He claims to have blond hair and green eyes, but his appearance is so average as to seem nondescript. The only things that stand out on him are his mirrored aviator sunglasses, slightly battered top hat, and bronze pocketwatch.
Skills: His appearance is so superaverage that people forget he exists when he's not in their field of vision. All other skills are unknown for the time being.

Background: Before coming to the Island, Oddity was homeless, wandering the streets of Oklahoma City. His memories of life before the Island are still sharp, but his memories of a time before homelessness are all but gone. He's been alone so long, (and taken a few dozen whacks over the noggin to boot,) that he can't even remember his birth name, and must go by Oddity.
Significant plot summary: Odd's greatest adventure on the Island to date is the birth of his blob-like pet, HGB.

But with the aid of Kestrel and Nathaniel, Odd managed to contain the creature, and convince it he meant no harm.

Skills: The only unusual skill Odd has is the ability to change genders. Unfortunately, he has yet to learn to control it.

Background: -waves a manilla folder in front of you-
"Do you need this? You don't need this. You think you need a background, but you really don't."
Significant Plot Summary: -opens the folder and reads the first page inside-
"What...what is this? No no no, you don't...there's nothing here for you to see. Really. You're fine without this, too."
Apparent characteristics: -continues reading, looking concerned now-
"I look. Normal. How often must I tell you, I am perfectly normal for my age. I'm not even that old, not really! Twenty-five is a lovely young age!"
"Are you...?" -continues reading, mouth agape in disbelief- "I am most certainly not 'Difficult to please!'" -reads further- "And what's all this about "melodrama?!" Offensive, purely!"
"Oh, well the got the part about management right, they did there, yes. Well done."
Background: Before coming to the Island, the aptly-named Paranoia was a budding necromancer, scientist, and evoker of. . . dubious skill. Her three major attempts at casting spells have resulted in changes to her appearance: the first changed her left eye from brown to purple for some reason; the second gave her a few blonde streaks in her hair; and the third, an attempt to summon the Cattle-God Hathurscurial, gave her an embarrassingly large bust. Now that she's on the Island, she might as well engage in further experimentation and occultation. Who knows? Maybe she'll get lucky this time.
Significant plot summary: Paranoia is new to the Island, and as such she hasn't done much yet.
Personality: True to her name, Paranoia is wary of those around her. Due to her interactions with the occult and super-scientific, she's conscious that not everything is as it seems. Despite this, she tries to be friendly and welcoming, but her eccentric and inquisitive nature can be off-putting at times.
Apparent characteristics: Paranoia has lightly-tanned skin from spending time on the Island. Her hair is light brown, with a few blonde streaks randomly scattered about. One eye is brown, the other purple. Her breasts are a cartoonish 99 centimeters. She is currently clad only in a pair of frilly pink panties.
Skills: Somewhat well-versed in literature of all sorts, but when it comes to putting theory into practice she's. . . negligible, at best.
Background: A partly-trained mud adept botched an invocation to turn flesh into mud; his own warped 'earthform' got hurled into a paradox. . . The next time he arose was under a different sun. Being given a somewhat new visage and set of clothes, he took the path that fell on him; making experiments and testing the possibilities given by the surrounding soil, he began to enjoy the Island and its charm. He took another form that he calls HareJoker, or something like that, after a week of meditation in an undetermined place.
Significant Plot Summary: During Season 1, he participated in the creation of the sammich of love and made an appearance (sort of) at M*A*S*H 404.

from a fluffy and childish jester to a full-fledged creep in a short amount of time; he has been called insane but harmless before.

Personality: Pace is very light-hearted and does his absolute best to be helpful. Since returning after his long absence she has been very flighty and often drifts off into space easily.
Apparent characteristics: Pace goes through many physical changes but his hair is a constant. Always black in the back with white bangs. He usually dresses in a very "emo" style that clashes greatly with his personality.
Skills: Prince PCee has been called one of the best marksman on the island...but only with his pirate weapons, his aim with an Uzi isn't accounted for. He also has a very green thumb, but only when it comes to plants that are made of candy.

Absolutely Nothing to see here... except Reks' bio
Background: Born as Regina Eveline Verb, daughter of an Oxfordshire family. Due to a moderately harmless administrative error, she got stuck with 'Reverb' instead.
Significant plot summary: Reverb has been in action during the Ex Libris events, mainly managing to make an utter fool out of himself52) on several occasions, including a rather spectacular barrel-race through the Common Ground. Fun times abound.
Her mutable personality and GERMhood have seen her be Dorothy Gale, the Queen of Fables, the hallowe'en special Rotten Reverb, and several other things besides. We'll blame Bernard.53)
Personality: Friendly, (un)focussed, and irresistibly drawn to to everything from Robots to household appliances, Eveline will do everything it takes to reach her (often utterly impossible) goals. Her job with the Network has only added to her area of interest, especially insofar as Ashtu's Anarchists are involved.
Lately, her focus appears to shift somewhat to avionautical endeavors, which led to the creation (and most recent destruction) of the A!RPLAYNE, posibly the most dangerous way of flying since the wings of Icarus. She's already drawing plans for the mk2...
She has a bio description. Go read it. It's the only part of her documentation that stays up-to-date.
A proficient tinkerer in electromechanics, and as such the mastermind *ahem* behind the Bingo Hall wiring scematics.54) She prefers to think of herself as a suave and undetectable rogue when she's up to mischief, but that's probably just because nobody has had the heart to tell her otherwise yet. She still believes a warped kind of logic applies to the island, and, really, who's to say she's wrong here?

Background: Rusalka grew up in a small city on a big lake, in a large house with a lot of cats, which when she was eighteen became a small apartment with considerably fewer cats. A young university student putting herself through college, Rusalka studied mathematics and physics and never really paid attention to the Improbable Island television show, with it's whacky antics and crazy monsters. She couldn't afford a TV, anyway, especially not one of those clunky post-EMP ones, and though she watched it occasionally with her aunts, Ruska was hardly convinced of its veracity until her door was kicked in and she was kidnapped and dropped out of a fucking plane.
Significant plot summary: Ruska started out as a human in Newhome, just like all the others. She died killing the Improbability Drive, which most certainly did not sadistically reanimate her, because the Drive has no sentience and thus cannot be sadistic. She is beginning to have strange dreams, especially during the full moon.
Personality: Rusalka is cheerful and practical, even dead. Though her first drive kill has sobered her up somewhat, she is still friendly and determined to understand the nature of Improbability.

Nothing new here...
Background: Rykar was a computer security expert, and a bit of a hacker, dabbling in security both phyiscal and electronic. He doesn't remember anything post-EMP, though. Might be he lost his memory, or came straight from that time.
Significant Plots: Rykar has become the official unofficial official Train Man... spreading rumors about an event, informing contestants, and generally knowing far too many things about Improbable Railways. Developed a friendship with the Peddler.
Personality: Rykar's curiousity gets the better of him occasionally, and he tends to be either playful, very playful, or dead serious. Or... a bit mad. Actually, more than a bit mad, if you set him off the
wrong right way.
Apparent Characteristics: A grey, tabby kittymorph. Slender and athletic, though he dresses more than most kittymorphs do. Can be found in black, pinstriped slacks, usually a black-and-navy fedora, and sometimes a silver and black dress shirt. Flaunts a bit, even if he doesn't mean to.

Apparent characteristics: Green scaly skin, 6', goat-like horns, wings, snout, green fire launched from his mouth.
Skills: Sneaking around unseen. Ambush tactics. Infiltration. Information gathering of all kinds. Can glide, but can't fly. Assassination. Firearms handling. Knows how to make small toy 'trick' devices, as well as cracking bigger puzzles.

Significant plot summary: Friends with Doubleleaf. They both try to escape this crazy Island, the first step being "know your ennemy". She wanders around the Island in search of answers and a bloody way out.

Background: An unstable character with a shady background who was interrogated by mysterious men, and somewhat later was shipped to Improbable Island.

Background: Not an outcast, but a happy introvert. Sink spent a lot of his early life playing in the high mountains, swimming in lakes, wrestling with bears, all that kind of stuff. Transported to the Island to bring in what the network described as "one of those Ray Mears-types, y'know, good at survival and stuff", he lasted out Season One and has been brought back for Season Two. With not so much an imagination, more multiple personalities, Sink seems to thrive on the improbability of the island.
Significant plot summary:
Sink was an integral part of the mass-hysteria episode which during Season One turned Cybercity 404 into a Korean War-era M*A*S*H Unit. Acted as a guard dog during the creation of a certain Sammich. Organiser of the Beltaine party.
Personality: Which one? The Stray, his most prominent personality, is of a happy-go-lucky bloke who has somehow become lycanthropic. He is friendly to everyone, except for the odd bad hair day (which for a wolf is a serious thing.)
Apparent characteristics: Well, he's a wolf, for a start. A werewolf, technically, but most of the time, just a wolf. Always friendly, Sink is often found singing or playing blues or folk music in one of the hostelries on the island, or in the Common Grounds.
Skills: Makes a mean cup of tea. Mixes martinis pretty well. has an awful sense of humour. Plays guitar, banjo, mandolin and sings like a strangled crow.
Potter over there and we'll sort you out a cuppa.
Background: There is only one who knows Skidge's background aside from Skidge herself. And he isn't talking.
Significant plot summary: After many years and many incidents involving the strange, sometimes mischievous, always destructive force colloquially referred to as Murphy's Law, Sarah "Skidge" Murphy vanished from the Island with nary a word to her husband, adopted clan-family or friends. At first, it was assumed that she would be back, as she was well-known for her wanderings and equally well-known for her reappearances. But as time went by, her name slid inexorably from "missing" to "presumed dead" to "dead".
However, certain mysteries continue to surround the creature known to the Island as Skidge...
Personality: Bubbly, friendly, huggy, bouncy, swirly, dancey, scruffy, disorganized, distractable, self-absorbed. Easily bored, but just as easily entertained. Stole any book that wasn't nailed down. Personality made a major shift in the time leading up to her abrupt disappearance.
Apparent characteristics: A scruffy little creature in a bowler hat, whose eyes gleamed the same shade of purply-pink as her chatter, which was either happening constantly or not at all. Her hair had bits of metal braided into it; her vest had been patched so many times it was actually all patch. Walked with a limp towards the end.
Skills: Inconclusive level of control over Murphy's Law, increasing over time until nigh-complete. At which point she vanished.
See Skidge's wiki page for possible updates.
Background: Sloth is pretty tight-lipped about his past, though if you were a fan of mime artistry before coming to the Island, you probably would have seen him on stage.
Significant plot summary: Sloth hasn't done anything significant in his life and intends to continue this trend.
Personality: Very friendly, almost always happy. Possibly (probably) insane, but not in a bad way! Polite, always happy to help or offer advice, though his advice may not always be sound. He holds the opinion that everything is a joke.
Apparent characteristics: Sloth is noticeably shorter than average. He has dark hair, somewhat long, in the style of a 19th century british poet. Bright blue eyes, when they don't happen to be glowing green. Wears Victorian clothing, and has a truly magnificent top hat. Sloth (almost) always has a grin on his face.
Skills: Acrobatics, an excellent sense of timing, surprisingly good at building (well, he's surprised, at least!), dancing, lying.
Background: "Grundy is grundy! Grundy's back not round. You give grundy money or grundy crush you like ringless Green Lantern." From lore, Grundy was a corpse imbued with mystical plant energy to become a walking protector of nature when something went wrong. Being this is improbable island, its just as likely he was a tree which died, and rose again as a zombie tree which then gained humanoid form.
Significant plot summary: On the island, Grundy has been conspicuously uninvolved in plots so far. Hopefully. Was present when the Murphy Skidge passed and helped fight the subsequent paradox demons.
Personality: Grundy has no personality per se. To say he has the IQ of a moist towelette would insult moist towelettes everywhere. He wants something, he takes it. But he has no idea what he wants. While being prone to violence, he is not grumpy or mean. Has odd bouts of random insight and wisdom. Is looking for something to sate his hunger.
Apparent characteristics: Tattered clothes, vacant expression and the fact that hes over 9 feet tall and weighs over 900 pounds are usually noticed first. He's a giant walking pale white corpse. Despite the lack of need to eat or breathe, he is none the less fond of steak.
Skills: Grundy is a 9 foot zombie with the IQ of mayonaise. He doesn't have skills, he's a people person.

Escaped, and after being kicked out of a number of schools, she drifted -- educating herself in libraries and underground repositories.

Earlier, she featured in a Joker Coming of Age story featuring 8 Symbol-Lessons taught by 8 Jokers.
Personality: Large. Honest-but-wily. Curious. Ardent. Whip-smart. Prone to quick judgement and easy laughter. Not-so-secretly a romantic. Overly protective of small creatures, underdogs and her island family.
Apparent characteristics: Comparisons to Hewlett's Tank Girl would not be mistaken since she's adopted this as a purposeful disguise. Tall, strong and scrappy-thin. Sports an overgrown cobalt-blue floppy mohawk, the forelock tied in a pretty ribbon. The striped patterns on her thigh-high striped stockings are her over-arching i-ching reading.

Background: Not much is known about Spark's upbringing; to ask her is to receive a litany of lies on the subject, occasionally interspersed with seeds of truth.

Bad at lying, bad at storytelling. Avoids physical contact with others. Has no use for friendships, family or emotional entanglements, though this has been subject to recent change. Has a weakness for stories and lost things.
Apparent characteristics: Small, dark, large eyes that glow Joker-green, mad hair that spoufs in all direction and closely resembles an explosion at a lab in which angora rabbits were habitually experimented on. Wears a coat that is three sizes too big for her, going raggedy at the edges.
Skills: Lockpicking, an affinity for and ability to find lost things and people, occasional and uncontrolled sideslipping into alternate dimensions, occasional and uncontrolled ability to render self unnoticeable to normal means.
Background: Born in the early 1950s, Stan was raised by an unmarried Hawaiian-Dutch woman she calls 'Mother.' Mother was a beatnik-communalist-survivalist, a RN and MD.

In 2011 she was put into cryo-stasis because of incurable cancer. When cancer was cured, she was 'thawed.' Her treatments ended just hours before the EMP bomb.

Skills: Bakes, cooks, spins, and weaves. Can do basic first aid. Knows a little about many things having to do with 'making your own' and 'doing it yourself.'
Background: Pre-EMP bommings, Stranger was somewhat of a physics Geek, also interested in early video games. These are the key reasons he became a regular viewer of season one of the Island, being abducted into it mid season 2. Post EMP left him scared enough to toughen up enough to become a desirable candidate.
Significant Plot Summary: With even his name drawn from video games58), mostly uses his involvement in the Island to live out his hero fantasies, which continuously get more insane with more Improbability exposure.
Personality: Primarily liking to think of himself as a gentleman hero, he tends to act polite, yet clearly projecting readiness to face trouble head on. His old geek tendencies have left him on the smart and cunning side, which means he rarely strikes without warning or reason.
Apparent characteristics: Very much a noob at present, Stranger is still Human. As such, he has few distinctive traits in this area. About 170cm, 20 years old, plain face, dorky haircut, slight amount of muscle not seen often thanks to his rags and armour.
Skills: Treason and lies, various Island critical skills, mechanical tinkering abilities, being charming, and bludgeoning improbable creations with weapons.

Background: Didn't get out much, pre-island. This might have been because she was a mental patient. You can decide for yourself on meeting her.
Significant plot summary: Had a complicated breakup with husband Joey, involving much sulking, before they got back together. Somewhere in amongst that there was a problem with some of the monsters which may or may not be a product of her own mind. This is currently classed as a Bad Thing That Happened, and therefore a good way to shut her up. 59)

Significant plot summary: No big plots, however, he built a crude tub-mobile for Edith when she was a mermaid. Gotta stay hydrated, y'know. The tub has since been... retrofitted by others. Oh! He also makes maps. and yes, he knows they need to be updated. He's working on it.

Take another look at her, why don't you?

Significant plot summary: None, except for a small bet with Mercury.
Personality: He is a fullblown geek, curious about the island and the Drive, socially a bit awkward and outrageously scared deep inside. He has no idea himself if he's still completly sane.

Background: Teague was a robotics engineer Pre-Emp. Naturally, he was devastated by the EMP... until he found out he was smart enough to do the same work for the military. He only got partially done with the first robot, built from the ground up, before he was abducted and thrown onto the island, for reasons he doesn't even know.
Significant plot summary: ...Considering how long Teague's been on the island, I probably should have something here. I don't remember any huge plots he's been a part of recently enough to remember, but he should've been a part of something big...
Personality: Teague is as much a doer as he is a thinker, and is very analytical, creative, good at problem solving, and hard-working. Tends to attribute odd or strange things to improbability to stay sane. And it works. For him.
Apparent characteristics: Teague changes too much from form to form for there to be any general characteristics that you can pick him out by. The two most reliable indicators are his voice, and his personality, neither of which change much between forms.
Skills: All kinds of engineering, varied combat skills, depending on the form, natural leader, creative thinker, and impressive self-restraint.
See Teague's wiki page for more information.
Note: There are currently 2 Teague's running around the Island. There's Teague, and then there's Future Teague. You can guess which one's which. They're similar enough that his narrator is only leaving up this note to indicate that.

Z is easily wrapped in the affairs of others, and not infrequently serves as a teacher to other Jokers.
