This is the ongoing story of Sam's crawlspace monster band.
Chancellor: The master of the mansion, and the monster in charge of all the others. He's a combination of a troll and an owl, covered in dark brown feathers as well as sporting talons, a small beak, and antennae. He looks a lot like the Grand Duke from the film Rock-a-Doodle, and even has his voice. He's quite benevolent though, but very fat. And like the character he was based on, he's got magical powers…And a humongous appetite. He occasionally likes to go out and transform little kids into food creatures. When he gets surprised or upset, all the other monsters steer clear of him, because he can transform anyone with his breath. But overall Chancellor is a very nice guy, and a musical genius.
Bernie: The mansion and monster group's second-in-command. Bernie is a fat and pudgy blue ogre, with ears similar to Shrek's. While Chancellor is impulsive and somewhat unrestrained, Bernie is orderly and peacekeeping. His main job is to keep Chancellor in line and keep an eye on him.
Kyle: An anthropromorphic orange lizard. His character design is inspired by the game Scaler. He sports brown stripes on his back and tail, sharp claws, and wild-looking “hair” (actually frills), as well as a yellow “soul patch”. Kyle is a bit of a practical joker, and often gets away with it due to his shapeshifting and invisibilty powers. He's also an avid gamer, though he does love music too.
Chad: A special kind of lycanthrope, Chad is a werebandicoot. He looks like a cross between Crash Bandicoot and Sonic the Werehog from Sonic Unleashed. He sports wild dark-orange fur, huge claws and fangs, super-strength, and super agility. He's a big party monster, and is often seen hanging out in the mansion's dance club and bar. Chad loves nothing more than having fun.
Kevin: Not really a monster, Kevin has an interesting backstory. He was a tech-savvy 16 year old human who ran away from home and unintentionally stumbled onto the monsters' mansion. He then ran into Chancellor, who didn't take too kindly to uninvited visitors. In a fit of impulsive rage, Chancellor transformed Kevin into a brown anthro slug. He still had his arms and his human size, but the rest of Kevin turned all sluggish. But he was ecstatic with his transformed state, and soon after meeting with the other monsters, he decided to stay that way and live with them.
Kevin can easily be considered as a big computer geek, always playing with gadgets and writing up complex programming codes. But he's also very social and outgoing. He loves his life and his monster friends…Even now that he's somewhat of a monster himself! He also loves martial arts movies.
Claire: A violet-blue colored human-sized ant. Despite her repulsive insect appearance, Claire is very sweet and thoughtful. She's also the most attentive member of the group, always following Bernie's instructions and guidance in the studio. She's also full of energy, and often gives her creative input to the band.
Newton: A dark grey werecat with lots of fur. Looks and behaves eerily similar to my cat Einstein. He's not much for words, and despite his name he's actually as dumb as a brick. But he does have some sense of style, and he loves being scratched and petted.
Percy and Miranda: Brother and sister wererats who live primarily in the basement. Percy is somewhat sleazy, disgusting, and prideful. Miranda - or Randers, as she's often referred to by the other monsters - on the other hand is very sweet, gentle, and humble. Percy is a big practical joker, and often has prank-offs with Kyle. Randers is an exceptional baker, and can make some mean cookies and peanut butter pies.
Cary Koopa: A long-haired grunge koopa. He looks like a cross between King Koopa from the Mario cartoons and Kurt Cobain from Nirvana. He doesn't have a spiked shell, but he's got the dragon-like body. Cary often hangs out by himself, strumming on his acoustic guitar and watching the world go by.
Fenrir: The group pet. He's a gigantic dragon/wolf hybrid who lives in the nearby forest. He can easily be destructive, what with his fire breath, sharp talons, and spiked tail, but he never means any harm. He loves playing with his masters, especially Claire, Kevin, and Kyle. Despite his fearsome name and appearance, Fenrir is truly a happy-go-lucky soul.
Buster: A troll who's basically a monster version of musician Phil Collins. He's named after Phil's character in the movie “Buster”, and has his voice, looks, and mannerisms. He's dressed like Phil in the “I Wish It Would Rain Down” video.
Lenny: A boggart who lives in a wardrobe in the attic, Lenny is the music critic of the group. He's responsible for reviewing the competition - as well as music in general - in order to help out the band and also for his job. He's basically a monster version of Lester Bangs.
