Character Profile: Ratboy

Arguably, just as important as Monkey is Ratboy from Ratboy Is Dead. Most definitely one of my oldest characters, and like most people in the comic, was originally based off a real person (though almost all resemblance to that person is now gone save for some highly charactured traits).

Ratboy is kind, extremely loyal to his friends – his only friends, Marvin and T.J.J. Ratboy is also not quite sure where his fantasy role-playing games mystical universes end and reality begins. Or why he keeps dying. Or why nobody else will tolerate him.
