The Slayerbot Series: Main Cast
Barbara Dixon, Slayerbot
- Barb was a normal girl in New Jersey in 1957. She mostly
behaved herself aside from a few daring moments at the
drive-in, up until she found out she was the new Slayer.
She did good for her part, fighting vampires and others up
until her death two years later. Now by a spell gone awry, she
finds herself in a robotic body in Santa Cruz, California --
Johnny Archer, Secret Boy Genius
- Johnny is a total over-the-top tech-head. What he can't fix
never worked in the first place. He stumbled across some
secret correspondence from the 1950's over construction of an
android body. He quickly became obsessed and managed to create
his own, and even added some improvements using modern
technology. However, up until a bizarre accident, the brain
has stumped him. He would be played by Toby MacGuire.
Tori Dromanse, Goth Chick from Hell
- For much of her life, Victoria has been trying increasingly
extreme stunts to get her parents to notice her.
Unfortunately, her parents were so "hip" that they just kept
approving of her individuality. Eventually, she fell in with
the vampire groupie crowd in Sunnydale and barely escaped with
her life. After moving to Santa Cruz, she now has a moral
mission to take out vampires, and is putting her rebellious and
criminal talents to the task. She would be played by Christina
Owen Gibson, Popular Surfer Dude
- Owen is the comic relief, an excellent surfer, heartthrob of
many a girl, and all-around popular guy in his class. Of
course, Barb quickly catches his eye. While brainless and
clueless, he has the knack of being utterly unfazeable.
He would be played by Owen Wilson.
Ashley McBay, Gay Vegetarian Wiccan Rich Girl
- Ashley is a well-known figure in the Santa Cruz High School
scene. She is editor of an alternative high school newspaper,
the Gaean. Her parents own an upscale resturant in downtown
Santa Cruz. She drives a green Beetle. She would be played
by Neve Campbell.
Max Fischer, Theater Geek
- Max is a misfit who is heavily into theater, known particularly
for his rather violent and gory choices for high school plays
-- such as Alien. He would of course be played by
Jason Schwartzman (from Rushmore).
- Marcus Grimmond, Crazy Old Coot
- This freaky grey-bearded old man (in his 70's) was Barb's
original Watcher forty years ago. Disillusioned by his
failure, he eventually quit the council and has tried various
magical experiments on his own. It is his miscast spell that
summoned Barb's spirit into the robot body. Marcus is not a
kindly father figure like Giles -- more of a crazy old coot.
In my original playtest with friends, I had him as a PC but
I then decided he was more appropriate as an NPC.
Rhiannon LeVay, Scary Techno Pagan
- Rhiannon was a PC for the second convention game, but isn't
a member of the Scooby gang. She and her boyfriend, Danny Li,
are rivals of Barb and her friends -- but circumstances in that
adventure made them into allies. Rhiannon is the daughter
of a powerful chaos sorcerer who passed away some years ago,
and now she is trying to live up to his legacy.
Danny Li, Tough Asian Punk
- A hotrod-driving, martial-arts-practicing ninja wannabe,
Danny is the boyfriend of Rhiannon -- who finds him useful.
Theirs is a somewhat dysfunctional relationship.
Steve Brant, Rebel Without A Clue
- A partner of Barb in the fifties, Steve somehow showed
up in modern times for one of the adventures. From an
unacknowledged Native American bloodline, he became a
totem warrior with supernatural powers. However, culturally he
follows leather jackets, slicked hair, and motorcycles.
Vincent Holt, Cool Teen Genius
- A newly-transferred student, he's geeky and a scientific genius
like Johnny in some ways, but he's also well-rounded, popular
at school, and socially charming. Naturally, he and Johnny
have developed a major rivalry.
