Playable Characters

  • Leeroy: 11 year old boy just getting into the world of fandoms. Has had an interest in gaming/anime/the like since he was a little kid. Very ignorant and impressionable. Supposed to be slightly annoying in his quest of trying to seem smart/get what he wants but still supposed to be likable and maybe even relatable to people who were like him as a kid. Archetype basis is of course, the fanboy. Overly loyal to a brand (Nintendo in particular) without much objective thought.
  • Leonardo: Leeroy's 15 year old brother representing the archetype of people who once they hit a certain age begin to feel that they've outgrown the things they loved as a kid (Nintendo for him) and they have to like more "mature" things (Call of Duty, Madden and the like for him) to grow up. This of course ironically points out his immaturity for his age due to his overly juvenile desire to seem grown up and smart (and constantly butting heads with his younger brother). Holding a similar but more negative parallel to Leeroy he likes the things he likes not out of the bottom of his heart but because everyone else does. He's lik
  • Lionel: Leeroy’s 7 year old brother representative of the perception of the newer generation of gaming. He likes the consoles but a lot of his time is spent on mobile type games as well. A lot kinder/less aggressive and pretentious than his older siblings but equally as impressionable. Very cute and innocent.
  • Abigail: (13) Serving as a contrast between Leeroy/Leonardo, Abigail is not only a girl, but also far more knowledgeable about what she’s talking about than both of these two. While she holds a preference in terms of brand, she’s open to all walks of gaming. However, being a girl in the fandom world (particularly the video game branch) this leads to her being disregarded/not taken seriously due to thirst on her fellow gamer’s part. In particular, she serves as an acquaintance to the Three Ls, with Leeroy and Leonardo holding one-sided crushes towards her (since of course girl who plays vidya!!!!!)
