Stacey is an amoeba. She is rather intelligent and nerdy. Sassafras is her favorite kind of tree. When revenge needs to be exacted, Stacey exacts revenge.

Captain Ivan

Gref is a rhizobium, which are bacteria that fix nitrogen for legumes. He is a rebel with many causes, the problem being that the causes usually suck. Gref is the drummer for the vegetarian metal band Vegetable Patch Disaster.


God is a dinoflagellate. He is multicellular, which is unusual for this comic. He has the unusual name of God, which is actually quite common for dinoflagellates, sort of like many Latin Americans are sometimes named Jesus. He is very awkward and enjoys baking desserts.

Professor Bonchi

Professor Bonchi is a baker's yeast. He is a professor of mathematics, but generally doesn't know what's going on. Prof. Bonchi also hosts a TV show called Let's Learn About Humans, in which he describes the peculiarities of humans to other unicellular organisms. He doesn't like bread. It makes him sick.


mKarla is a nanorobot. The "m" in her name is silent. She is a rabid bibliophile.

Mars Maroon

Mars Maroon is a Sulfolobus solfataricus, which mostly live in acidic volcanic springs. He is a cowboy who loves paper airplanes. He often mixes up word order when he talks.


Nebra is a Oligotrich, a type of ciliate protozoa. She works as a waitress at Protozoan Pizzeria, the favorite restaurant of Kurt, Herby, and friends.


Clarence is a sentient whiteboard, brought into existance at Kurt's wish. He had a few miscommunicated introductions, and can be a bit sarcastic at times, but is overall a nice guy. Erm, whiteboard.
