Easton the Elephant
19 (Elephant Years)
The youngest intern to work in the office, Easton cannot do much right, and only seems to complicate things. He is clumsy, dull, and dimwitted at times. His only positive is that he can remember almost anything, including (freakishly) his birth. He is always posing questions and never providing his own insight. He eats salads and junk food, plays on his cell phone while at work, and can never hear what he is told the first time. Easton fills the room with his awkward presence and languishes in others' laughter and bright spirits. He is always looking to spark laughter and excitement from his coworkers with jokes, little known facts, and deeply philosophical questions that he could never dream an answer to. Easton's future relies solely on his ability to outperform others in the office and make a name for himself within the company. He has nothing else to do, besides adventuring beyond his parents' backyard property, admiring the beauties of the natural world and animals he finds there. Easton is the most naïve character at the office and is oftentimes exploited/persuaded into doing work that is simply not his own. He lives with his parents and really enjoys the simple life, but still ventures out with his friends occasionally.
George the Vulture:
52 (Vulture Years)
George is laid back for a vulture, and he rarely upsets others at the office. His stance always intimidates his coworkers, yet his sharp eyes keep everyone around him on edge. He is calm, collected and always on task, yet he perceives everything as a struggle for survival, including everyday office activity: making copies, faxing, uploading documents, and scanning various forms. George doesn't seek promotion, and instead only cares about the minor things in life. He has no major plans for his future, and lives an utterly dull and uneventful life aside from what happens at the office. His ties are always striped with small dots on the lighter stripes. He only eats raw meat, yet nobody in the office recognizes this, especially at office lunch-ins or potlucks. George is the type of worker who watches multiple television shows, including the most popular dramas, and collects random objects such as ivory pens.
Cynthia the Gazelle
27 (Gazelle Years)
Cynthia is sleek, sophisticated, and stubborn. She is the most pretentious worker in the office, yet she has the ability to transform her mood like no other. Quite the haggler, Cynthia brownnoses her way into every position and sale. In her mind nothing stands between her and her happiness. In reality a lot stands in her way: promotions, other female secretaries, egotistical males in higher positions that suspect she's past her prime, and the constant mishaps that seem to delay her climbing of the office ladder. Cynthia doesn't see much character in any of her coworkers and exploits them for her own self-righteous gain. She is strictly business, yet flaunts her shapely body as if to attract appeal –only Harry seems to notice and care. Cynthia always has her work submitted in a timely manner, everything well organized. She always drinks herbal tea, eats healthy (no meat), and spends a great deal of time at the gym. She doesn't care much for Easton, and she'd rather not waist her time around interns.
Larry the Lion
41 (Lion Years)
Larry is king of his office. Or so he believes. As a lion, Larry beholds a presence unlike any of the characters at the office –all besides Easton. And this embitters Harry. He assumed that Easton would be a valiant attribute to the working environment, but all Easton has done lately is make Larry feel insecure about his own domain. Larry often finds himself debating over whether he should kill his entire office of staff, and save their bodies for food later on, but he fights these feelings with over the counter prescriptions from his doctor, Dr. Trap (a mouse). Larry runs the office pretty well, but there is of course many things he does not notice: Cynthia's tardiness, George's inability to accomplish tasks on time, and Easton's culpable addiction to computer games, vending room visits, and especially his incompetence in completing the tasks requested of him accurately. Larry is the king of the office, and his workers, he sees, are his pawns.
