Hackles is our
hero, the hapless programmer dog. Like many dogs, he is
friendly and just wants to get along with his officemates. He
doesn't care about (or have the knack for) office politics or
creating conflict. More often than not, he prefers to be
left alone to code and drink massive amounts of coffee. A true
techie, Hackles is somewhat of a nerd, enjoying Dungeons and
Dragons, watching the Sci-Fi Channel, and building robots.
is a free spirited cat, often torn between her feline
instincts and the more civilized corporate world. A skilled
Web images with the Gimp. Katrina's nerdy side also includes
an appreciation of sci-fi, especially Star Trek and
Star Wars. Like many computer-literate cats, Katrina
can be caught batting the mouse around when no one is looking.
The boss is an even-tempered dog who tirelessly tries to lead
BitCo to success. He isn't the most technically
proficient animal at BitCo, but he makes up for it with his
excellent people (err, animal) skills. It is a full time job
keeping such a diverse range of animals happy and
productive. While he is often puzzled by their eccentricities,
deep down Boss Dog has faith in his employees.
Marcus is a hot tempered rodent. His views tend to be rather
conservative, and he makes no bones about voicing them. While
he can grate on the nerves of his officemates, he also has the
ruthlessness required to succeed as a marketer at BitCo.
These guys are a
cryptic duo, saying very little but wielding incredible power
as BitCo's network administrators. Peter and Percy spend their
days and nights endlessly tapping away at the keys of their
supercharged Linux workstations, wordlessly destroying enemies
and amusing themselves.
Any resemblance they may bear to
the famed Linux mascot Tux is, of course, purely coincidental.
Hazel is the receptionist at BitCo. Everyone gets along with
this nice rabbit, although she can be quite nervous
and jumpy. The phone often scares her just by ringing. Like
most rabbits, she loves carrots in any form. Unlike most
rabbits, Hazel has poor vision and needs to wear
glasses. While she likes her job and her co-workers,
she is easily distracted, and can often be found snoozing
at her desk or daydreaming on the grass hills outside the
Preston is a programmer at BitCo. Day or night, this overweight porker
can be seen churning out sloppy code and gorging on junk food and
that ultra-caffeinated beverage,
He is rather immature, and often brags loudly about his
"l33t 5killz", much to the annoyance of everyone else
in the office. Despite being overbearing and crass, Preston is
basically a nerd at heart, and he and Hackles seem to hang out a lot.
Vic is a robot that Hackles built out of an old Vic 20
machine and some spare computer parts. Hackles originally
wanted to create
a battle bot,
but was a little
short on cash
while buying equipment. Certainly, Vic is much less fierce
than a battle bot, but he makes up for it with his
intelligence and remarkable sentience. This is pretty
impressive, considering he only possesses 3.5 KB of RAM
along with a 1 MHz processor. As the only
Vic 20 based robot in the world, Vic has a bit of an
identity crisis, and is always trying to discover his
purpose in life, while adapting to non-robot society.
