BAY CITY WIKI

Bay City, California, is a fictional city that I have had in my head for years. It has appeared in many guises. It was the setting for my Homo Heroes comic book, it was the setting for my Macho Women with Guns FRPG campaign, and aspects of it have spilled over into Geobra Island, my Playmobil world. It was also featured in the Hero Trip, a super-hero FRPG that I created with another comics fan. I also intend to use it as the setting for my episode in the story "Round Robin".

All the names in Bay City are terrible puns, like the names of drag queens. The most important character is Justin Thyme, who is my own avatar. His middle name is Danika (his grandmother's name), so his full name is Justin Danika Thyme. His initials are JDT, just like mine.

Click here to see the rules for Bay City naming.

This wiki is organized in one of my favorite formats, the telephone book of Iceland. Because there are no family names in Iceland, the book is in alphabetical order by first name. There is an entry for each last name in Bay City, followed by the first names of people with that last name. Other entities besides people are contained in this wiki.

In the first column, names in italics are family names, names in bold-face are costumed crime-fighters and criminals.

A

A. P. AiryBay City bee-keeper who trains bees as killing machines (although each bee dies after it stings). He will use the name The Bee-Keeper. Brother of A.V. Airy, uncle of Jan U. Airy.
Retcon: it may turn out that A. P. Airy is actually the creator of Chicken Hawk's wings, since bees are aerodynamically unable to fly.
A. V. AiryKindly old scientist who disappeared mysteriously. Brother of A.P. Airy. He was especially interested in birds, and how they fly. Perry Grinn cleared up his estate for his niece Jan U. Airy, and as payment was given the plans for the wings which he uses as Chicken Hawk.
A. Whatsnew, Dr.assistant and biographer of Sherlaw Kombs
Abel Bakerradio operator for TWA, husband of Cookie Baker, father of Colinda. Abel is a Cajun from Louisiana, and speaks French like a native -- of Louisiana. He named his daughter for the title character of the song "Allons danser, Colinda".

Al ChemistA pharmacist with a sideline in philters and charms.
Alice Forgiven
Allison DeKayA mysterious woman who apparently lives, or is at least contacted, at a sepulchre in the Nessun Dorma cemetary. She has power and control over the undead, and was active in two MWWG adventures. She is not a villain, however. At least, so far. That you know. She is assisted by mortician Paul Bearer; their relationship is unclear except that he is a minion. Note: for "Round Robin" she is called Morgana. Allison DeKay doesn't work as a name, really. Note 2: The name is being retconned into "Fata Morgana".
Alpha DogA German shepherd police dog with a telepathic link to his handler, Kay Nine. Sometimes it is necessary for Kay to perform actions inappropriate for a law officer; when that happens he puts a mask on his dog, Center, and then mentally helps him track down criminals that the law cannot touch.
Angela MercyNurse. Also the 'healing' character that I created for City of Heroes. Daughter of Laura Mercy. She may also be a nun, a member of the Sisters of the Holy Crusaders, with healing powers.

Anna CondaSnake charmer and herptologist.
Anna QuarianDaughter of Prof. N.T. Quarian. She was recruited by Zodiac (1) and given the power to form and control water, using the identity Aquarius (1). She is not a criminal, and it is not known if she has retained the water-control ability.

AnyoneDennis
Aqua-MarineCostumed identity of Gil Breather, a soldier from underwater Atlantis. He intended to attack a Bay City polluter with a troop of soldiers, but the pollution killed all of them but him. He was rescued by Justin Thyme and Pearl Diver, who cleaned him up and saved his life. He is reluctant to return to Atlantis, and so works for Thyme and Tide Marine Services as a diver. Aqua-Marine is a borderline character, unclear whether he falls into the hero or villain category. He was also Pisces (1) for the first Zodiac criminal cartel.
Aquarius (1)Secret identity Anna Quarian, recruited by Zodiac (1) with the power to form and control water. She is not a criminal, and it is not known if she has retained the water-control ability. (Sidebar: Aquarius is the Roman equivalent of Ganymede; apparently the creator of Zodiac (1) was unaware of this, or lacked the information to mind-control Zeus' cup-bearer.)
Arachne PhobicInsectologist (or arachnologist?) who helped with MWWG with a giant spider problem. Sister of Homer Phobic, although that was never revealed or germane.
Archie OlogyArcheology and ancient history professor at Adventure College. Brother of Phil.
AresGreek god of War (more specifically the god of bloodlust, or slaughter personified), sent from Olympus by Hera (his mother) to take another shot at Ganymede. However, instead he was, to his amusement, recruited by Scorpio to become a member of Zodiac (2), under the name 'Aries', a homophone. She did not understand the difference. His sister is Hebe, wife of Herakles and former cup-bearer.
Aries (1)Member of Zodiac (1), he has almost no neck and a metal plate in his head, and so he is able to knock down doors, walls and opponents with his head-butt. He is not a member of Zodiac (2). His real name is Roger A. Shepherd.
Aries (2)See Ares.

Brown Recluse, theMy favorite costumed crime-fighter. Handsome actor of villainous roles, Basil Garden was in a disfiguring accident. Horrified by his facial change, he retired from acting and became a recluse, haunting the studio that had once been his workplace. When he learned of a plot to by Mustafa Scruluse to kidnap the actors in a movie entitled Witch Queen of Oz, he assumed the identity of the Brown Recluse. Mustafa was using disgruntled midgets as his henchman, so the Brown Recluse started bumping them off. He was definitely an ambiguous character morally. I used this as the setup for a MWWG episode. It was going to be a Homo Heroes adventure, but that didn't get off the ground. I have also used the Brown Recluse as a character in my short-lived City of Heroes on-line game, and introduced him into Poseidon Prep as a teacher in Pride High. He is an expert athlete and sword-fighter, and has been known to use a poisonous dart-gun.

Non-military uses include thermal efficiency analysis, remote temperature sensing, short-ranged wireless communication, spectroscopy, and weather forecasting. Infrared astronomy uses sensor-equipped telescopes to penetrate dusty regions of space, such as molecular clouds; detect cool objects such as planets, and to view highly red-shifted objects from the early days of the universe."

Zodiac (1)Costumed crime cartel organized by Zoe D. Ack, although she does not seem to actually have been the mastermind behind it. She used information about birth-signs and locations to mind-control twelve powerful individuals, but was defeated because she assumed that the Gemini twins were born on the same day and in the same place. Zodiac (1) was based on the astrological zodiac, and consisted of Aries, Aquarius (1), Cancer, Capricorn, Gemini (1), Leo, Libra (1), Pisces (1), Sagittarius, Scorpio, Taurus, and Virgo. Opposed by the Homo Heroes in their first group appearance.

Based on the astrological zodiac, it consists of Aries, Cancer, Gemini (2), Leo, Sagittarius, Scorpio, Taurus and Virgo. It is still seeking members to complete the roster. Opposed by the Homo Heroes. Note: Zodiac (2) has not actually appeared yet; it is still in the planning stages.
