Crew of the Lucky Strike

The crew of the Lucky Strike, a cargo-ship that was a former war relic.

Species: Terrekin

Dashen Razaal Kameku is the Lucky Strike‘s engineer. He works to keep the ship running despite its classification as a war-era antique.

He is extremely protective of his friends, and is generally well meaning with everyone. He is prone to distraction, however, and has dealt with being a target of bounty hunters as a child due to the reputation of his vigilante father, Razaar.

Dash is particularly interested in technology. He prefers to fight with a traditional terrekin staff. He has formed a very strong bond with Blu, the mysterious stowaway robot found on the ship.

First Appearance

Species: Terrekin

Mara Aluia Senten is the captain of the Lucky Strike. She is a gifted strategist with a very competitive personality.

She is a very hardworking person who trained in martial arts alongside Dash during childhood. While he has let his discipline falter, she has not and has studied aggressive, powerful combat styles. She sometimes worries she is too serious when it comes to her job.

She is particularly interested in military history and at one point tested into the Federation Military Academy with excellent scores, but opted not to enroll. She has a weakness for sweets.

First Appearance

Species: Parrack

Senn “Kracker” Toucair is the pilot of the Lucky Strike. He is extremely talented with piloting vehicles of all sorts, making up for his inability to fly with his wings that was the result of a childhood injury.

Kracker is a fan of food, drinks, and jokes. He has a rather frequent strain of bad luck, however, often complicating situations. He is easily distracted as well. He is Dash’s best friend from Gnarlruut Academy, and has bonded quite quickly with young Dorian.

His secret desire is to become a Zero-G racer. He is extremely flirtatious with other species, but among his own kind he is considered to be a lesser male because of his inability to fly with his wings.

First Appearance

Species: Astro-Mole

Bernell Marken is the founder of the Lucky Strike Delivery Company and manager. However, he typically prefers to spend his time as the ship’s cook.

Marken established the business with his inheritance after the tragic death of his parents in a space-faring accident. The choice of business was to honor their wishes, but he is more passionate about food, opting to spend as much time in the kitchen as he can, and only accepting a wage fitting in with the rest of his crew.

Marken is well respected by everyone on the ship and is treated almost as fatherly, despite his being only a few years older that most of the crew. He is fairly naive at times and does not enjoy running the delivery company.

First Appearance

Species: Grey

Dorian D’Lazmuh is the Lucky Strike‘s medic, opting, for some reason, to do his medical internship aboard a cargo-ship.

Dorian is unlike most grey who are mostly seen as cold and aloof as he tends to wear his emotions on his sleeve. The birth circumstance of he and his siblings, Angn and Fellian, are likely the reason for this.

He is an extremely talented medic, but frequently finds himself bored. He is more or less the youngest member of the crew and can be seen as the baby of the group. Mara is particularly protective of him.

First Appearance

Species: Wot

Guugel serves as the security guard to the ship and is a crack-shot with just about any ranged weapon he comes into contact with.

Guugel is a mysterious figure on-board the ship who arrived with Dash and Kracker when they joined. Guugel does not speak, but is very expressive. Unusually, Dash seems capable of carrying full conversations with him, and nobody is quite sure how.

Guugel does not consume food like most of the crew, but seems to absorb light and moisture. During dinner he tends to have a small bowl of water he hips his fingers into.

First Appearance

Species: Artifici

BLU is a mysterious robot who was living on the Lucky Strike when Marken bought it, and has continued to remain on it throughout the crew’s travels. He is considered part of the crew.

BLU is completely silent, but extremely expressive, more so than most artifici. BLU opts to live within the ducts and systems of the Lucky Strike, and generally helps Dash with upkeep when they aren't constantly undoing each other’s work. BLU spends a lot of time with Bucketbot in the engineering bay.

BLU refuses to let Dash study his inner-workings, but the evidence is there that BLU may have a voice-box that is disabled and may be even older than the ship.

First Appearance

Species: Artifici

Bucketbot is the newest addition to the crew. Originally a general-purpose bucket at Shmoofyland, he pined for a chance to explore the galaxy. His creator, Walter Kimney gave him that by sending him along with the crew of the Lucky Strike as an assistant.

Bucketbot is an old robot, one of Kimney’s first, and has developed a sarcastic, worn personality over the decades. He generally works as a tool-bucket in the engineering bay, but can be found just about anywhere on the ship.

He has formed a friendship with BLU that is likely to lead to mischief.

First Appearance

Crew of the Thruster Spear

The Crew of the Thruster Spear: Space pirates who tangle frequently with the crew of the Lucky Strike

Species: Repton

Vid Seng is the self proclaimed captain of the crew. In an organization that is highly disorganized and merit-based this does not count for much. Typically the crew goes along with his whims unless they have better ideas. He often struggles for command of the crew with his wife, Illyana.

Vid is a repton with a couple of rare mutations, one of which is a tail, a typically repressed characteristic in repton biology. Vid is arrogant, aggressive, and egotistical which likely stems from a life of being an outcast among reptons. A particular target of his aggression is Dash Kameku, who Vid sees as his rival. Dash doesn't seem to care, only infuriating Vid further.

Vid is never seen without a hat. The only person who knows what may be under it is his wife.

First Appearance.

Species: Repton

Illyana Mordon is the wife of Vid Seng and considered to be the ship's primary gunner and strategist. They are somewhat happily married, despite her overall exasperation with him.

She is a combat-enthusiast and is hyper competitive. While Vid is considered the leader in name only, most of the time Illyana is the one calling the shots. She has taken a particular dislike toward Mara likely due to similarities in their personalities.

First Appearance.

Species: Blassnaught

Brik Targent is the general muscle of the crew. He is usually responsible for the heavy lifting and intimidation. Despite his size and appearance as a blassnaught, Brik is fairly jovial and loves to eat and drink.

Brik is a former Imperial soldier who gave up military service to pursue a life of crime. He eventually crossed paths with Vid and Illyana, who quickly recruited him to serve with them under Cayne, their former captain.

First Appearance.

Species: Slauve

Miria Pha is the slauve pilot of the Thruster Spear. She has an addiction to space travel and enjoys getting involved with chasing down ships the crew has targeted. She is rather unusual for a slauve in that she prefers to keep her locations clean, though she is known for being a bit of a mess in the common rooms.

She may or may not be dating Quell. Nobody on the crew is quite sure.

First Appearance.

Species: Tentachlid

Quell Blaxstromas is the tentachlid engineer of the Thruster Spear. Quell is extremely self-absorbed and has betrayed the crew when it serves his best interest. However he always seems to find his way back into their graces. He is exceedingly talented as an engineer, and his boneless body has allowed him to explore the ship in ways most engineers could not.

Quell secretly has designs on a position of leadership, either on the Thruster Spear or a future ship.

First Appearance.

Other Characters

Many of these characters are recurring. All are named.

Species: Human

Walter Isaac Kimney is the CEO of Kimney Robotics, which is a division of GalactiCorp. His focus is on artificial intelligence, and he rose to galactic prominence with the development of "lifelike" toy versions of his family's "Shmoofy Bear" character.

While the Shmoofy branding has become a media-powerhouse, Kimney tends to focus in artificial intelligence experimentation. After the events of Shmoofyland, he sent one of his first robot creations, Bucketbot, with Dash, a young terrekin who impressed him.

Kimney was later promoted to CEO of GalactiCorp after the events concerning the theft of a mysterious cube.

Kimney is a second generation human resident of the Silver Spiral Galaxy.

Drakar is often accompanied by his personal assistant, Ms. Mayden, and owes a life-debt to the Wootari Bros., who are two small-time Mantoid thugs.

Species: Human

Andrea Mayden, or most commonly known as Ms. Mayden is the personal assistant and bodyguard of Drakar Vadis. Her efficiency is almost supernatural in nature and she seems to manage Drakar's interests with his full faith.

Andrea is also keenly aware of Drakar's role in organized crime, and manages many of those operations on his behalf.

Species: Artifici

T-WK is an artifici thug who was involved with ALF (Artifici Liberation Front) activities on Orlindia in the Shmoofyland theme park. He at one point established a hive-mind connection with every single robot in the park, enjoying the power until he lost it all and tumbled off the "Roller Ghoster."

After his defeat he was shipped off to a junk-world and reassembled by a friendly robot. T-WK, however, retained part of the code that allowed him to access the programming of the other robots. He also remembers Mara, clearly, and seems to hold some sort of grudge.

First Appearance

Species: Mantoid



Species: Mantoid

Wootari Wulg and Snix are inseperable Mantoid siblings who work for, and are under the protection of Drakar Vadis.

Wulg, the smaller of the pair, is typically the leader and very aggressive. Snix is generally more relaxed.

Species: Hauke

This interest was further increased due to the crews involvement with the recovery of the mysterious GalactiCorp cube.

First Appearance

Species: Parrack and Artifici

Pele Souvar and her CamBot act as a roving journalistic team, combining indie streamcasting and freelance reporting of news. She recently stumbled onto a big story in the form of the Shmoofyland terrorist incident having received a tip from an anonymous party (likely one of the terrorists) that something important would occur.

Her first on the scene reporting has bolstered her career as a journalist in a big way, even as an independent figure. This notoriety however would have big repercussions for Dash, a subject of the Shmoofyland incident as details in her article allowed a figure from his past to track him down.

First Appearance

Species; Cyclopasian

Orthos Kabalos is a cyclopasian male who currently acts as a freelance investigator in a joint project between the Federation and Empire concerning a mysterious cult within the Cyclopasian Neutrality. To say Orthos lacks a sense of humor would be unfair. Despite his grim task he seemed to form a bond with Kracker during an investigation on Dea'tha.

Orthos has proven effective in hunting down the cultists due to some form of inside knowledge indicating that he may have once been a member of the cult. He was also once married, but his wife and child are now dead, and he does not generally give many details concerning his past.
