Rye was an NPC of sorts in a LARP game I was running with some other people (Mage The Awakening). She had pink hair and always wore big platform shoes.
She was a prolific hacker in the game, who started out a bit anti-social (but with ties to the most powerful mages in town) and eventually left town with her werewolf boyfriend after a bunch of bad things happened in game. She resented the way in which she got her powers and often "peaced out" of dangerous situations that involved faeries. At one point in the game, the internet personas of various mages took on a life of their own (in the SpiritNet) and Rye's, her hacker persona "Rath" (xX|Rath|Xx), ended up kidnapping her into the SpiritNet and hanging out with Rye's IRL friends for a while before they put it all together and attacked.
In my home town by the quay, it is absolutely overrun by pigeons.
They feed on doughnuts and other treats dropped by tourists.
Sometimes they become so fat they are unable to fly.
Anyway, this is a pigeon.

That was the last database and it took way more work than I thought it would. Almost as much as an issue itself! But it should be easy to maintain it now.

We'll update the official tag, and the next update here will be for Issue 11: The Bachelor.
See you then!
Tyler is based on my own brother IRL.
In the original Nick Polar Bear, Neil was without a brother so it's kind of interesting to give him a little more family.
We'll be seeing more of Tyler in the future.
So, this one is a little weird.
In a very early build of Nick Polar Bear, there was a monster who was essentially a tree. The character was, at the time, called...
George W. Bushy Snow.
It was a different time back then, and the character wasn't actually named by me.
So, Nick Polar Bear would have foreshadowing nightmares about this tree. And it eventually messed him up in a forest, but he was saved by Atomic Android and a version of Floria who could not transform.
This version is probably a lot better, though we haven't seen one in action.

Oh, I should clarify the whole "snow" bit.
It was covered in snow. In the old Nick Polar Bear, it was basically always snowing.
Any fan of Squirreltastic should recognize the old villain, Uncle Atlantis from Senoire Delirium.
It was never officially revealed, but his name was actually Anthony or Tony for short.
He's been recast as a security guard here. Sort of a cameo.
A basic reference to my dad IRL.
His favorite sports team is the Minnesota Vikings.
Therefore, he is a viking with the team colors.
The blonde hair was a coincidence as that was planned long before the viking persona.
Tarlie was originally designed as a grey alien, but I kind of wanted her to look a little more original. I sort of thought of her as a deity of some kind, but the actual matter is that she's basically just a human from another dimension with powers.
@witswithme: I will find a way!

Static is a sort of recycled character. Or, more of a concept.
In a very early build of a comic called Team Blast, three boys were given super powers by a deity named Static who was simply described as a cute girl made out of static electricity, but that build of the comic is long gone.
When Floria was given a strong role in Nick Polar Bear, I took Static and gave it to her as her super form.
Skylar hasn't officially appeared in the comic yet, but has been mentioned and made an appearance in a special page.
His name is composed of reader suggestions and then simplified into a modern name.
These girls were very loosely based on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's Forest Temple Poes.
The idea was down scaled as Nick Polar Bear is not really a dungeon crawler. At least not in any traditional sense. Their personalities and names were based on three cousins I have that I used to play with as kids.
While Matt is based on someone real, Matt's mom is based on that real person's mom.
I mostly recall her spending a lot of time in her own bedroom, kind of like a teenager.
Samantha is a recycled character from Senoire Delirium 2: Rivalry. She was meant to be a kind antithesis to Matius in the comic where she's confident, and well trained.
She's essentially the same character here, except that she's got a little more background to her. That said, she's more or less only a background character.
Based on an old friend who didn't have colorful hair, but loved wigs.
Sabina is sort of just a friend for Blair to have in the background.
Rye is a character originally made by IamBlair, and Rye is a computer hacker.
In Nick Polar Bear, Rye briefly served as a super form for Blair and was an electrical entity... Basically Static.
We re-purposed her to be an internet type person who knows everyone and everything to serve as both an info for the audience, and Nick Polar Bears boss.
Fun fact, no characters in the comic have been in the same physical space as her.
Anything you'd like to add, IamBlair?
All gentlemen should be like Russer.
His creation is a pile of puppetry, where his design and colors are based on Bert and Ernie, and the name comes from the Canadian shorts called Nana Lan'. The young girl in the program often says "Russer" to her pet dog.
We liked the name more than we should.

Peg is somewhat based on a collection of people I knew in school.

Clearly inspired by Dora the Explorer.
The core idea behind Pan Dora's box is that it changes the world when opened. Matt hurt Pan Dora and it changed his world.

I bet you all want a bite our of poor Orange Wonder now.
Of course, this is a character made by KinglyPeasant, and you can read about the Orange Wonder and his adventures with the link below.

Any author notes you'd like to add, Kingly?
Don't worry too much about this guy.
He's doing okay.
