In all honesty you inspired GK so that's accurate for me
I look in the water and fear what I see
I know it's no stranger but I know it's not me
My life is a lie that was uttered in jest
If I can't change at all, let me rest

In all seriousness, Rob was inspired a lot by Astro Boy and Pluto. He was also inspired, currently, by the works of Nihei Tsutomu and his dystopian cyberpunk worldbuilding.

Drake (Hellboy) was inspired by the whole Mignolaverse and Lovecraft mythos while Plainsville was literally a mix-up between Kirlian Frequency and Nightvale. However, I have been drawing some inspiration from Constantine, Solo Leveling and D&D in general for his upcoming stuff, while still looking after Lovecraftian stuff and Hellboy stuff.

Drago was inspired by Sebas from Overlord initially, but his idea is more of a gentleman thief of sorts. Overall, badass old men from the media, Musashi's Book of Five Rings, the whole Rocky series and there's probably more but I really can't tell.

Tremor is actually a cooler revamp of a character I ran years ago for an RP that died.

The previous RP was 'useless super heroes'. A training academy for people who had powers that were too useless to be employed by other government / military agencies. Turns out, a kiddo who makes shockwaves that knock out everyone around her and herself also works well for Sandbox!

Talia is hugely inspired by Kilgrave in Jessica Jones.

I decided to come up with this character because of Drake, but the essence of his build up is thanks due to Mav and Kaija; and their criticism into how I write, that I decided to change.
