On this page are some short overviews for the primary characters in the Monochrome RPG, including their age, species, and alignment. Alignment is the character’s views on law versus chaos, and the other on good versus evil. The two axes allow for nine total alignments.

Otto

Age: Young Adult
Species: Toon Citizen, Rabbit
Alignment: True Neutral

Ottomess Blohtz, who goes by Otto, is an outcast of Vaudevillian society. No one truly knows where he came from, but he’s often pushed around because of his appearance and his occasional awkwardness. His self-esteem is shot, he is always covered by his clothing, only revealing his eyes and ears. Otto believes he’ll never be truly accepted in society but he still wants to find himself.


The Stranger

Age: Elderly
Species: Toon Citizen
Alignment: Lawful Good

The Stranger was the mayor of Vaudeville before the recent elections where LeStache deposed him. He lost his little empire, and now spends his days putting on disguises while scurrying about the Vaudeville Underground.  The Stranger is off-putting, always ranting about LeStache’s evil. With each new disguise, he hatches a new scheme to find a way to dethrone LeStache. Otto and The Stranger seem cosmically linked, as their stories begin to intertwine from the very beginning. 


Bruiser

Age: Adult
Species: Toon Citizen, Dog
Alignment: Chaotic Evil

An extremely tough and bullish resident of the city that has always had it in for Otto. As an outsider, he’s an easy target for Bruiser. While Bruiser experiences some estrangement due to his short temper and reliance on violence, he has a run on the streets of the city with his sidekick Hairy Perry. He’s braggadocious and violent, so he can hang around anywhere he wants with little to worry about.


Damezelle

Age: Adult
Species: Toon Citizen, Rabbit
Alignment: Lawful Good

An actress often typecast as a “damsel in distress”, Damezelle is regularly held hostage, attacked, and in danger through her job. As a result she’s become calm and tough; but also stressed and annoyed at the heroic Toons stealing her spotlight. As Otto’s only family and his older sister, she wants to see him succeed and encourages heroism in him. 


LeStache

Age: Middle-aged
Species: Toon Citizen
Alignment: Neutral Good

A mustachioed mayoral villain donning a cape and top hat, nothing is subtle about LeStache. A show man as well as an opportunist schemer, he’s well-connected with a lot of nefarious activities going on, but is very careful to cover his tracks. Vaudeville’s new mayor has a few tricks up his sleeve. He is able to store a ton of secrets in his cape, yet his weapon of choice is a solitary six-shooter.


Gazer

Age: Middle-aged
Species: Toon Citizen
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

A strange Toon with multiple eyes who lives in the basement alongside Gackle. Gazer also enjoys wandering about the dense forest of Greyshade Valley. Until recently Otto didn’t even realize Gazer existed, as the odd creature prefers to blend seamlessly into darkness. Gazer might be a strange bedfellow, but he has more in common with Otto than initially appears.


Rayel

Age: Young adult
Species: Toon Citizen, Mosquito
Alignment: Neutral Good

Rayel is an awkward timid mosquito, as well as one of Otto’s only friends. She often braves past the City limits to visit him. However, being a mosquito, Rayel has often accidentally bitten others with her nose. Because of this stigma, she’s usually avoided by others and has issues with being open about her feelings. Otto and Rayel bound about their estrangement. She works as a nurse in the Hospital and uses her blood-sucking ability with ink transfusions 


Smolder

Age: Young adult
Species: Toon Citizen, Lizard
Alignment: True Neutral

Smolder is a moody, mature lizard who is almost never seen without his trademark cigar. He works on the line at the automobile factory. He often acts as an older brother figure to Otto during their adventures and has an interest in hard-boiled detective monologuing and smooth jazz. He’s been crushing on Damezelle.
