Nth Degree

Thus far, there are only two characters in the Fanbreeding universe. Let's hope it stays that way.

Age: 22
Likes: Anime, gaming, the Harry Potter and Lemony Snicket novels, British television
Dislikes: Trendy sitcoms and TV dramas, all fanboys except Matt

Generally: Saru is what every fanboy (apparently) wants in a girlfriend - she's cute, she's smart, and she shares all the same geeky interests as her significant other. However, she tends to either become 'one of the guys' in group gatherings, or exhibit her incredibly dirty mind and sense of humour at exactly the wrong time. So ... is having a fannish girlfriend as great as everyone seems to think?

Trivia: Saru is Japanese for 'monkey' - hence her shirt. Her last name is from British actor Stephen Fry (most recently the voice of the Book in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), whose career I admire greatly.

Age: 23
Likes: Sci-fi, high fantasy, gaming, miniatures, old-school anime
Dislikes: Squealy fangirls, most new anime, half his sci-fi club

Generally: Matt is fairly easygoing, in sharp contrast to his outgoing girlfriend. Unlike most fanboys, he prefers to sit back and enjoy his fandoms quietly - although, when asked if Mace Windu could take Doctor Who, he'd be the first to jump into the debate.

Trivia: Matt's name is taken from the pseudonym for the abovementioned Mr. Fry's unrequited love in his autobiography, Moab is My Washpot.
