Characters



Welcome to the Fetch Zone

Far-Fetched is an independently produced animated pilot. After accidentally releasing her own chaotic canine creature into the world, an overly-anxious girl named Rue is dragged into a rock band of late-2000's misfits called Sesamoid. Armed with their budding friendships & an ancient ice cream truck, the gang uncover much more than meets the eye about the town of Veilport & become tangled in a world where science is at odds with monsters & the supernatural.



Sounds decent enough. So how are you going to make this, smart guy?

Good question, person writing this. In case you haven't heard, creating independent animation isn't cheap. Sure, you can get backing from a major studio, but they might tell you "No Ashley, you can't have 17 werewolf characters.", and these conditions are just barbaric. So, we plan on funding Far-Fetched completely on our own! These days, internet-produced animation has become far more common, and it's very clear that the medium can easily thrive outside of the studio system.

We've already successfully produced a 2-minute proof of concept short animation and plan on funding the full pilot episode on our own, with additional support from fans, so that we may create a show that isn't limited by the expectations of some business suit named Frank. If we don't screw this up and people actually like it, then we plan on funding an entire series, in order to fully bring to life the story we want to tell. Sure, this is a little uncertain and risky, but it's a lot better than working with Frank. Screw you, Frank.


That's It. Leave.

Rue Cervello

Voiced By: Nola Klop


Always trying to act fine no matter how not fine things are, Rue was trying to carve out a path for herself until a chaotic canine creature entered her world and forked her life up. She’s had a love for both the cute and corny since her youth, cuddling with plushies while watching monster movies with her dad. This false sense of security never prepared her to handle both the supernatural and actual adult world. As she nervously joins her newfound friends to play keyboard for Sesamoid, she struggles to maintain control of her suppressed emotions & the adorable beast she’s unleashed.

Kira

Voiced By: Jazmine Luevanos


She’s a dog. Just a normal dog. Don’t ask why she has hair… or is purple… Okay she’s anything but normal, but she’s Rue’s emotional support creature! She uses multiple mysterious powers & frightening forms to fight off both Sesamoid’s supernatural & Rue’s internal struggles.

Quinn Huckley

Voiced By: J Michael Tatum


He doesn't think he’s better than you, he knows he is. As the leader & drummer of Sesamoid, Quinn’s tunnel-visioned determination for his band to make it big often puts his crew into perilous situations. Being childhood friends with Rue, and knowing she wouldn’t say no, he dragged her into joining the band after he couldn’t find a “reliable” keyboard player. Even though he makes his friends do all the hard work, his keen eye for talent and charisma are what brought the gang together. Despite how much he shows off, he still can’t escape his grandmother’s garage.

Piper Stubbs

Voiced By: Dani Chambers


A medical student with a love of cosplay and theatrics, Piper is the extroverted guitar-shredder of Sesamoid. Despite being the youngest member of the gang, she tries to be the most composed. When it comes to putting on a show, she and Warren are the ones that have to bring Quinn’s crazy ideas to life. Nobody is quite sure where she finds the time to pull everything off, and it’s kinda scary. She tries her best to keep the gang in high spirits, even if that means neglecting her own needs and standing in harm’s way with her trusty six-string.

Griff

Voiced By: Jacob Takanashi


An unpredictable airhead with a heart of gold, you’ll probably find the lead singer of Sesamoid inside of your local trash can. Armed with a powerful voice & cursed with an accident prone existence, Griff is a friend to creatures both big & small. He was a bit of a drifter, happily just existing, until Quinn acquired him for the band. Now he makes his home inside of Sesamoid’s untrusty ice cream truck: Papa Swirl. It may be hard to understand his logic sometimes, but he always has the best intentions.


AGE: 22

Warren Webber

Voiced By: Jonah Scott


Like your dad after an 8-hour car ride, Warren has had just about enough. As the bassist of Sesamoid, this intellectual behemoth is the sole member of the band with a realistic mindset. While he has his friend’s best interests at heart, he isn’t afraid to let them know how often they’re horribly misguided…especially Quinn. He handles all the hard work, from constantly fixing the ice cream truck to making sure their shows don’t implode. His college degree isn’t taking him anywhere, so he spends his time slapping the bass and keeping this group of misfits from dying.


AGE: 25
BIRTHDAY: 09/21
PRONOUNS: He/Him
SEXUALITY: Straight
Fun Facts!
- DnD Character: Lawful Good Dwarf Fighter
- Favorite Color: Orange

Papa Swirl

Voiced By: [REDACTED]

AGE - ∞---- BIRTHDAY - 7/17


One half ice cream truck and the other half band van, Papa Swirl is Sesamoid’s untrusty steed. Reliable as any ancient vehicle, Papa constantly finds himself being repaired by Warren just to get the gang anywhere. Don’t let his head’s eternal smile fool you, Papa Swirl judges all with his piercing eyes. Now, try to make yourself comfortable between the drum kit and soft serve machine.


Clodagh Huckley


An ex-rocker now off her rocker, Clodagh is Quinn's nurturing, metalhead grandmother. Born and raised in Ireland, she moved to America in her 30s with her family to pursue the dream of being a rockstar. After Quinn's parents suddenly walked out, she took up the mantle of raising the hard-headed goth boy. She may act absolutely batty, but she's the best granny you could ask for.

Regan Locklear


Chill and seemingly apathetic, Regan is a reptile-loving, practial effects guru. The only thing that explodes bigger than her on-set pyrotechnics is her heart for her girlfriend Piper. She adores all types of scaly fellas, because cold-blooded critters are misunderstood just as much as she is. Don't let her harsh-exterior fool you, she's a total softie on the inside. Except for her pyrotechnics...those can hurt.


AGE: 22

PRONOUNS: She/They
SEXUALITY: Demisexual Biromantic

"Drain" Creed

Voiced By: Michael Zekas


The son of a major record executive & complete shit-lord, Drain is an EDM musician & the self-proclaimed rival of Sesamoid. Dawning his trademark neon helmet, this shampire is the band's (and specifically Quinn's) biggest nuisance & constantly interferes with their adventures for his own selfish reasons. He loves to flaunt his vampirism for the fangirls & fame, but there are much less glamorous sides to being a vampire that he tries to ignore. Though he may be a nuisance in the eyes of the Sesamoid gang, deep down he's a bigger threat than anyone, including himself, would have guessed.


AGE: Immortal (Mentally: Early 20's)
BIRTHDAY: 07/26
