Harchier Spebbington[edit]

Achievements characters[edit]

Bill "Baddest Santa" Weeks[edit]

Santa Portrait.jpg Bill Weeks didn't think he could stoop any lower than a part-time job as the Mall Santa. But the little girl weeing on him screaming "He's the Baddest Santa Evuh!", followed by being fired, took it down yet another notch, so Bill went down the pub to drown his sorrows. Coming out to the next morning he had no job, a filthy headache and a truly evil temper. And the world was full of monsters. Bill picked up a handy shottie and waded in. "I'll show you the Baddest Santa, you BEEEEEEEEP Baddest Santa.png

Steampunk Mr. Foster[edit]

Steampunk Mr. Foster Portrait.jpg In some alternate universe, day traders are considered cool and desirable. In that alternate universe they get cool Steampunk gear to wear and don't write sad little autobiographies that no-one cares about. And, just for once, something in the original Foster's mind seems to have leaked over into the real world. Won't he be surprised? Steampunk Mr Foster.png

Commando Chicken[edit]

Commando Chicken portrait.jpg Special Inspector Edmund Cook arrived to the West End Central Police station halloween party wearing his prized chicken suit. He had witnessed a lot of brutality on the force, but something in him snapped when the Horzine Outbreak reached his precinct during the party. He suited up for combat still wearing the costume, and now he won't take it off. Maybe it helps hide the pain, helps hide the inhumanity he feels massacring the hordes of specimens.

Reaper Portrait.png If there's one thing office cleaner Timmy Grimes has always loved, it's scaring the living daylights out of people, which is why he's always revelled in Halloween; it's the one time he can scamper around dressed as the Grim Reaper without being pointed at by confused women and chased up and down London's streets by the law. But recently, Timmy's proverbial fear-thunder has been stolen by mega-corporation, Horzine, who have managed to churn out terror by the truck-load thanks to their annoyingly genuine monsters. So Timmy's determined to get in on the action any way he can. If that means getting hold of some serious ballistic hardware and wading into the fray to reap some real nightmares, then so be it.

Steampunk Mrs. Foster[edit]

Steampunk MrsFoster Portrait.png In one of the perverse paradoxes created by weird alternate realities, that place where day traders are hip and trendy seems to have the same effect on their slightly-warped commodity-trader girlfriends. Now who would have guessed that? Steampunk MrsFoster.png

Guest characters[edit]

Pyro Blue and Pyro Red[edit]

Blue Pyro Portrait.jpg Red Pyro Portrait.jpg Only two things are known for sure about the mysterious Pyro: he sets people on fire and he/she doesn't speak any language. In fact, only the part about setting things on fire is undisputed. Some believe his occasional rasping wheeze may be an attempt to communicate through a mouth obstructed by a filter and attached to lungs ravaged by constant exposure to her asbestos-lined suit. Either way, he's a fearsome, inscrutable, on-fire Frankenstein of a...thing. Pyro Blue.png Pyro Red.png

George "Herman The German"[edit]

Herman the German portrait.jpg George was known as 'Herman the German' to his colleagues at work, for his unhealthy obsession with every tiny detail of his German WW2 uniform collection. He had been happily accepting the plaudits of his fellow re-enactors regarding his new replica Gasmaske Modell 1930/38 when THEY arrived. Beating off a bunch of monsters was not the use he had in mind for his replica MKb 42(H) - but it worked well enough!" Herman the German.jpg


Nikolai portrait.jpg Nikolay actually is Russian. And his uniform was the envy of all the re-enactors for being completely real, having belonged to his grandfather. It was a complete mess, which Nikolay secretly couldn't care less about. But it tended to get him a lot of free beer at the events. His subsequent drunken shouting in Russian was all assumed to be part of the act. Suddenly taking to stabbing things wasn't - but it was too late to worry about by then. Nikolai.jpg

Ricky Vegas[edit]

Ricky portrait.png Ricky was truly psyched to dress up in WWII Marine Corps gear and shout a whole bunch of lines into a microphone to help a pal out. He was so gung-ho about the whole thing that he spent most of the day annoying the living wotsits out of everyone in the studio. The grumpy Japanese guy kept looking like he would be happy to send Ricky to meet his ancestors even before lunchtime. Once they let him loose with some of the period weapons, the crew was beginning to fear for their lives - and they'd refused to let him in the same room as any live ammo. When the Zeds burst into the studio, Tony the producer had shoved him in the path of a bunch of clots - but Ricky promptly beat them to death. Then they let him have the live ammo... Ricky Vegas.png

Hayato Tanaka[edit]

Hayato portrait.png Tanaka had been talked into doing some voice acting for a mate, who was building some video game. Then he'd got talked into dressing up in period Japanese military gear for publicity photos. As a Japanese-American with Yakuza aspirations, this was rather beneath his dignity, but he needed the dosh, so he had to grin and bear it. On the other hand, having military hardware on hand, including a genuine Katana, when the Zeds exploded into the studio was a stroke of luck. The Yakuza may have been eaten before Tanaka got a chance to join them - but at least he can do the full tenno heika banzai legitimately on a bunch of freaks! Hayato Tanaka.png
