Jimmy O'Hair

Jimmy

Jimmy

Jimmy is an even-keeled guy trying his best to cope with life in the modern world. He works at Bookrazy, the last independent bookstore in town and attends the local university, clinging to his long-held dreams of being a writer some day. Tall, lanky and possessing memorable red hair, Jimmy often gets carried away inside his vivid imagination. Being an easy-going idealist help to get him through the daily drudgery of his low wage day job, myriad of dating problems, an unsure career path, and all the curves life throw at him.
Keith

Keith

A pudgy, laid back and good-hearted guy who has been Jimmy’s best friend since childhood. He works as a computer engineer and has a big interest in sports and movies. Though very prudent, he likes to hit the bars in his spare time in search of the elusive perfect woman.
Laticia

Laticia

Jimmy’s co-worker at the bookstore, she is very often the voice of reason, even if it’s with a touch of cheekiness. She’s got a keen interest in forensics, probably from watching way too much CSI. She also has an interest in politics and activist causes, which is why she is studying pre-law at the university. Though she is a grounded individual, she likes to let loose in dance and loves the funky art scene.
Lola

Lola

A good friend of Jimmy’s who attends the university with him. She is smart, pretty, affable and very neurotic. She comes from a wealthy background, and is a very high maintenance social debutante. Despite her anxieties and busybody nature, she maintains a close relationship with Jimmy.
Mr. Olsen

Mr. Olsen

Jimmy’s bald, middle-aged instructor at the university who teaches English and creative writing. Though he is soft spoken and speaks in a drawl, he has a sarcastic side and often mocks his students. Despite this and his tough exams, he always has his students’ best interests at heart.
Ms. Berkstrasser

Ms. Berkstrasser

The authoritarian and somewhat androgynous manager of the bookstore, who has little patience for incompetence. With a real competitive streak, everyone wonders why she runs a bookstore instead of a football team. Beneath her coarse language and constant threats of termination, she is actually a supportive and good boss to her quirky bunch.
Zeke

Zeke

He is the Bookrazy receiver, stocking carts and tallying the inventory of books. He does just enough to get by, and is the general slacker of the group. He is a fairly tech savvy dude whose free time mainly consists of playing videogames, listening to indie music, and smoking weed. An aspiring musician who hopes to one day be a rock star, right now he is content to jam on his guitar with his buddies.
Zeppa

Zeppa

Jimmy’s loyal dog, she is very savvy and independent. Always learning something new, she keeps busy in a variety of endeavors around the house, like cooking up gourmet dishes, practicing yoga, and surfing on the Internet.
Cabo

Cabo

The bookstore hunk, he makes all the women swoon in his leather vest and boots. Despite his idiotic tendencies and limited command of English, there’s something about him that gets customers to buy more than they intended. Maybe it’s his chiseled physique, long blond hair, and foreigner’s appeal, all of which ooze sex. He is the expert on romance, but mainly on experience, because it’s not quite clear if he can read.
Brooke

Brooke

Jimmy’s young and beautiful co-worker is impulsive and fanciful, but can be ditsy and flaky beyond belief. Her unusual blonde locks, boundless energy, love for the latest cultural trends, idolization of the bizarre, mixed up philosophical ramblings, and general naivete make her an endless source of fascination.
Hootie

Hootie

A bookish, erudite owl with hard rimmed glasses is a frequent visitor to Jimmy and Bookrazy. A bit of a curmudgeon and a snob, he has an opinion on everything. He loves the arts and classical music, and displays a wry sense of humor. Though he complains a lot, he cares deeply about his friendship with Jimmy.
