The Cast List

as of October 2003

This is a set of brief biographies of some of the entities (famous or infamous) to be found in the pages of the fanzine INTERCEPTED. A list of all currently claimed aliases follows the biographies.

Elfland, basically. Location is protected from entry from other time lines, worlds, or whathaveyou by a magic construct called The Barrier. To get through the thing in EITHER direction requires a device called a Key. Keys are made of a special metal alloy, shaped into a spiral form and set into a piece of jewelry or other article of clothing. Currently three travellers from Ardelein are with the questers on the raft:

Virain Tal-Virain: Male elf, hereditary prince of the province of Virain in the land of Ardelein. Virain is currently under a regency until Virain is of age; he is out on a quest to prove something or other by exploring in other lands. Has an unfortunate tendancy to go off half cocked which is how he managed to lose his Key. Is now looking for it.

Lisaine Bin-Lara: Female elf, from the land of Chisala, which is outside of Ardelein. Met up with Virain on his travels, rescued him from a dragon he'd managed to annoy, and found herself stuck with him, mostly because of her (probably accurate) feeling that he had no business out without a keeper. Is beginning to wonder if this was a serious mistake. Has picked up a number of interesting things in her wanderings.

H'rrll: Furfolk (resembles white cougar), also from Virain, and keeper of the Travel Box. Charged with trying to keep the heir from killing himself (why?) but hampered by the fact that Virain outranks him and is a graduate cum laude of the Han Solo School of Action Without Thought. Think of Virain as a very new, commissioned 2nd lt, without the faintest notion of what sergeants are for.

The Fictator is a reader of INTERCEPTED who will, every now and then, shout advice or warnings to various characters under the impression that they can hear him.

Human male, average height (1.7M), early 30's, brown hair, fair-skinned with the mild ruggedness of one who spends time in the wilderness. A native of Reading, PA (23rd Century), he works for a company called Earthworks which restores ecosystems. His favorite things in life include hikes in the wilderness, historic buildings, Monty Python's Flying Circus, and his wife, Tana (qv). He simply adores her, and will do what he can to protect her from harm. He wears the Lapin token of LifeMating, a wooden bracelet inlaid with brass, which, for some strange reason gives him the ability to summon up characters and stock props from Monty Python. (Source: an unpublished, serialized love story by Philip B. Smith.)

Hamegg, although still of indeterminate age, has had a forty-year career portraying sleazy lowlifes, aided both by his naturally ruthless, self-centered personality and by a set of teeth two sizes too large for his mouth, which set his face in a villianous leer no matter what expression he tries to affect. He has claimed a variety of nationalities, from British to German, but has appeared mainly in Japanese cartoons and American adaptations of same. (His most memorable roles on Western TV are Cacciatore, the robot slaver from Astro Boy, and Viper Snakeley, not-so-great white hunter from Kimba the White Lion.) Notwithstanding, he also remains a prime suspect in the death of Bambi's mother, despite the recent evidence implicating the late Judge Doom...

His forty-year anthology career has caused Hamegg to break the fourth wall and realize he is a fictional character. This has led to a discontent with his typecasting and a gradually growing desire to portray a hero and come out a winner just once.

Kutta ("Tubby" to friends, enemies, and a few casual acquaintances) is a rotund individual who has had a similarly long career playing overweight, perpetually hungry oafs. He partnered Hamegg at least once, dividing his time between aiding and abetting and feeding his face. He has no objection to helping his old crony try to be the hero this time (the comedy-relief sidekick role being pretty much the same no matter what side you are on) but is fairly skeptical about Hamegg's chances of success.

Marshal Graham was minding his own business in 1873 when the Galactic Federation of the 26th century pulled him out of his own era to battle a renegade scientist-cum-time-lord before he totally disrupted the space-time continuum. Since then, Graham has bounced from era to era, taking on amazon cavewomen, central casting Indians, runaway robots, homicidal zombies, hostile wizards, mad Saracens, chainsaw-wielding crazies, combat-happy ninja and assorted other threats to his health and well-being.

In addition to being handy with his gun, Graham is quite good at hand-to-hand combat. His adventures in some eras have also given Graham a fair amount of skill with the short sword.

Occasionally, Graham's presense causes a localized time anomaly in the immediate area.

AKA the Loch Ness Monster, prefers to call herself a Loch Ness DRAGON. Has two winged offspring, Angus and Fiona thanks to one Raugh the Black Dragon (and one Greystar Pascal, a musteline geneticist with a strange sense of humor...) Lives in a swimming pool in Ye Ed's basement when not out at the Loch, or travelling about. Owns a Little Nash Rambler. Beep beep!!

Ralph (aka Wile E. Coyote, though he's not using that persona here because there's not a roadrunner in sight) needs no introductions. He's the same as he was in the old Warner cartoons...the same fanatical singlemindedness, the same incredible physical resilience, the same fantastic ingenuity, and, of course, the same monumentally lousy karma...

Still, things have been looking up since he met Brandy Lee, his one true love, to whom he was recently married in this very 'zine. Really!
